PE & Sports Premium

The PE and Sport Premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils.  The government is spending over £450 million on this funding over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016.

Muskham Primary School receives £8,585.00 in PE and Sports Premium.  


£6,460 is spent on 1 hour of weekly specialist PE teaching for Years 1 to 6 with Mr Chris Lindley.

£800 is spent on staff development

​£845 is spent on sporting equipment and resources

£400 is spent on subsidising coaching of teams and extra-curricular groups.

£80 is spent on membership of the Newark Area Sports Network which provides access to sports leagues. 


The Pupil Survey evaluates the impact of this funding.  The most recent results say that:

- 96% of pupils enjoy coach-led PE

- 77% of pupils believe they learn more from the coach than from their teacher alone

- 90% of pupils say that the coach-led sessions improve their confidence in sport

- 86% of pupils say that the coach-led sessions increase their desire to try out new sports outside school

- 100% of pupils who participated in catch-up swimming found their confidence and abilities had improved
