Sports Premium

Our Sports Premium Grant

Highgate Primary School received £17,840 Sports Premium Grant funding for the financial year 2021/22. The Sports Premium school money was used to help provide continuing quality sports provision for all children.

The amount Highgate expects to receive for 2022/23 is £18,280.

Our spending plan (see document at the bottom of this page) details how we project our spending for the year to provide specialist coaching to offer high quality experiences for the pupils and to continue to help up-skill the teachers to raise their confidence in being able to deliver high quality PE. It will also be used to provide equipment and training to support sports leadership for some of our older pupils and to subsidise the cost of extra curricular clubs and activities.

Pre-2016 parents were allowed to opt into swimming instruction and many did not. This made it not financially viable for the school to deliver swimming tuition. From August 2017, we have developed our swimming provision, year on year.

We have opened up our swimming offer from the beginning of this academic year to all children in Key Stage 2 as we see learning to swim to be a priority. The school has sought a better deal by accessing local funding to help subsidise some of the increasing costs and give every child the opportunity to learn to swim.
