Somerlea Park Junior School – Physical Education Development Plan and Spending Report


In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport, to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. Funding has been allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils from 1 September 2013.

Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of. Funding is allocated per pupil in each school.

 Somerlea Park's Philosophy on PE


At Somerlea Park we place an emphasis on school sport and PE.

 In 2016-17 the school is allocated £8000 Sports Premium Funding.  Please read the information below which gives details about how we allocate the spending.

At Somerlea Park we are committed to developing the whole child physically through high quality Physical Education, which is supported by a competitive annual calendar of school sport. In addition to this, we also provide physical activities for children to become active outside the means of the school day. We also aim to use Sport to enhance our English through the use of physical literacy.

 We achieve this in the following ways:


  • By accessing team teaching support from the Amber Valley School Sport Partnership (AVSSP) for 1 day per week to work with staff.
  • We affiliate to the AVSSP so we can access an annual calendar of competitions and regularly look to arrange fixtures with local schools and also run an inclusive sports day annually for KS2.
  • We use the sport premium to develop extra curricular clubs within the school for all ages.
  • Pupils who are entitled to pupil premium funding can access our after school clubs to enrich their life experiences
  • Finally, we develop physical activity through intervention groups to support movement and health such as the Derbyshire 5/60 programme and bike ability delivery.
