What is the PE and Sports Premium?

The government provides additional funding for maintained schools and academies to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport.


At Rolleston Primary School, we greatly value the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our children.

We believe that a well planned PE curriculum, strong teaching and extra-curricular opportunities support our children in being healthy and promotes the enjoyment of physical excersise as well as having a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.


The school has now greatly strengthened its provision in specialist PE staff through employing an advanced skilled PE teacher and a full time sports coach to meet the priority needs identified through previous Sports Premium Impact reports.

The school has also improved its internet and wifi infrastructure to allow ICT to be used in the sports hall and across all the outside playing fields


How has COVID altered the way in which PESSPA is undertaken at Rolleston Primary School?

P.E. and the curriculum

During this time, teachers are adapting lessons to develop skills from the National Curriculum as well as ensuring safety for all. 


  • master basic movements including running, jumping, throwing and catching, as well as developing balance, agility and co-ordination, and begin to apply these in a range of activities
  • perform dances using simple movement patterns.



  • develop flexibility, strength, technique, control and balance [for example, through athletics and gymnastics]
  • perform dances using a range of movement patterns
  • take part in outdoor and adventurous activity challenges both individually and within a team
  • compare their performances with previous ones and demonstrate improvement to achieve their personal best.
  • adapting learning through developing individual based skills in area of games

Active lessons

To ensure that our pupils are hitting the 2 hours of physical activity a week, classes are:

  • Teaching class lessons linked to PE skill development
  • Using Teach Active and resources to make lessons more active
  • Having regular workouts to encourage activity and better prepare children for learning
  • Encouraging active break and lunchtimes.



During the Autumn term, we are ensuring that our pupils are still able to compete in a range of activities and competitions.  We are part of the Leicester City School Sport and Activity Network, which allows us to have access to both Digital and Virtual competitions. So far, we have taken part in:

*football challenges

*cricket competition – batting and fielding

*Sportshall Athletics


Key achievements to date:

  • Increase in minutes of active children within the curriculum – Maths of the Day
  • New initiatives – Fitness Friday, Rolleston Mile
  • Entry to new competitions
  • Greater focus for SEND children – Boccia, competition and also Sensory Circuits


Areas for further improvement and baseline evidence of need:

  • Development of dance through new SOW and CPD for years 1-3 & 6
  • Greater % of children taking part in competition
  • Swimming CPD for all staff
  • Further CPD for OAA sessions
  • AR to work with staff on athletics


Virtual Award (due to lockdown)



Each school audited on their swimming activity achieves a grade depending upon the results of the audit.
