Sport Premium

Our Use of the Sport Premium

In July 2019 we gained the School Games Bronze Award for 2018-2019.... well done team Riverside: This year we took a very inclusive approach to school sport, ensuring a balance between being competitive and including as many pupils as possible - our many achievements can be seen in our Sports Premium Report. 

 The Use and Impact of Sports Premium at Riverside School

The Use and Impact of Sports Premium at Riverside School

For the past few years, the Government has provided substantial funding to primary schools in order to improve the provision of physical education and sport. All state-maintained schools, academies, middle schools, special schools and pupil referral units which have primary aged pupils receive the funding.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We are held accountable for how we use the additional funding to support pupil progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Riverside.

All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Smaller schools receive £500 per pupil.


Riverside has ensured this money contributed towards 5 Key Performance indicators set by the Government as well as agreeing how best to progress as a school. We have undertaken a detailed PE and School Sport audit and developed our Sports Premium plan to raise standards and participation levels in PE throughout the school. Our rationale for the use of Sports Premium funding, which the Governors have agreed, are that it must be used so that the 5 KPI's are met within our Riverside vision:
