The Chandler C of E Junior School

Sport Premium

The Government is committed to funding primary school sport with money to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all children.

PE and Sport Premium 2020/21


Funding is calculated by reference to the number of pupils at each school. Primary Schools receive a lump sum of £16,000 plus an additional payment of £10 per pupil. This resulted in funding of £19,539 for the academic year 2020 to 2021.

At The Chandler, the PE and Sport Premium funding is used to provide the two hours of statutory Physical Education required every week. Specifically, the funding supports three coaches to provide an afternoon of sports activity for each year group. For most of the academic year 2020 to 2021, the school was unable to run the wide range of sports Clubs that it had done before the impact of COVID-19. Such Clubs provided opportunities for all our children to participate in football, tennis, judo, athletics and other sports and activities. Most of these Clubs were up and running again in the Summer Term.

Using the PE and Sport Premium funding for the academic year 2020 to 2021, sport and PE provision at The Chandler was enhanced as follows:


Action £
Sports coaches providing two hours of quality PE entitlement to every child £18 427
Investment in PE equipment and grounds maintenance £6 957
Confederation Schools Sports Coordinators £1 958
Total Estimated Cost in each year £27 342

The impact of the additional funding has ensured:

  • Provision of a wider range of games and activities offered to children
  • Improved pupil attitudes and participation levels in sport
  • Improved pupil fitness levels
