School Sports Premium



The government currently provides additional funding  to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. 


In the academic year 2016-17 Horniman will receive £8,990 Sports premium funding.


The aim of this funding is to:


  • increase participation rates in such activities as games, dance, gymnastics, swimming and athletics

  • increase and improve success in competitive school sports

  • ensure an inclusive physical education curriculum

  • ensure children experience a range of provisional and alternative sporting activities

  • improve  partnership work on physical education with other schools and other local partners

  • increase links with other subjects that contribute to pupils’ overall achievement and their greater social, spiritual, moral and cultural skills

  • ensure greater awareness amongst pupils about the dangers of obesity, smoking and other such activities that undermine pupils’ health


In the academic year 2015-16 Horniman received £9,020 Sports Premium funding which was allocated on the following:


  • Employing a sports consultant to coordinate competitions across several schools, providing staff training on team building skills and assisting the PE coach with a review of the PE curriculum to ensure a broad and balanced curriculum

  • Entering as many Borough competitions as possible

  • Membership to Football and Cricket leagues

  • Employing  a dance specialist to develop children's street dance skills across the school 

  • Developing  yoga practice and mindfulness across the school 


The impact of this has been:


  • Children have developed their core strength and understanding of the importance of rest and calm for the body.

  • A dance presentation  to parents by each class demonstrating their street dance skills

  • Wide and varied extra-curricular programme

  • Participation in inter-schools competitions:
