The John Bamford Primary School - Sports Funding Impact Report 2022/23


At John Bamford, we recognise that sport and exercise has a tremendous impact on the physical and mental well-being of our pupils. It not only develops physical ability but also develops social skills, sets out competitive boundaries and encompasses all of our school values.

Our school has become a driver for excellence in PE and Sport. We are extremely proud of our achievements and are honoured to have achieved the School Games Platinum Award in 2022/23, having previously earned the Gold award for the last six consecutive years, in recognition of our ongoing commitment and achievement in the School Games Competition Program.

What is the PE and Sports Premium Funding?

In the academic year, primary schools are provided government funding to achieve a commitment to children and young people having access to at least 60 minutes of sport and physical activity per day. This PE and sports premium can help primary schools to achieve this commitment, by making additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered through their core budgets. It is allocated directly to schools, so they have the flexibility to use it in the way that works best for their pupils. PE and sports premium funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
