PE and Sport Premium

Sport Premium Funding at Cottenham Primary School

With the advent of the sport premium Olympic legacy funding (2013 – 2020), schools across the country are finding innovative ways to improve PE and school sport provision for their pupils.
At Cottenham we have joined forces with the South Cambs School Sports Partnership to offer a comprehensive package of support for our staff and pupils.



All pupils leaving Cottenham Primary School will be physically literate and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.


We would expect indicators of such a vision to include:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  • the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport


In the school's 2018 2019 budget,  £20640 was allocated to the  areas outlined in the attached report.

School Games Mark Awards

The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools will  graded as either bronze, silver, or gold. Those schools which consistently achieve the gold award will also be offered the opportunity to upgrade this to platinum


In 2018 2019, we were awarded the Silver Award and will be aiming to achieve the Gold award next year.
