How Will You Spend Your Sports Premium?

The continuation of sports premium funding will help schools continue to use physical education, sport and physical activity as a tool to improve educational attainment, emotional and physical health and wellbeing.

Our Sport products ensure pupils leave primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to lead a healthy lifestyle and commit to a lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

Here are a few exciting and effective ways to spend your Sports Premium:

The are so many exciting options that will achieve the following objectives:

  • Increase pupil participation in competitions, sport and events.
  • A lifelong positive attitude to exercise and a healthy lifestyle 
  • Broaden the sporting opportunity available to pupils.
  • An opportunity to experience success beyond the academic area
  • Train pupils to become Young Sports Ambassadors (to support their pupils throughout the school in physical lunchtime activity).
  • Improvements in curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities 

A school surveyed their children to measure the impact of their new MUGA (Multi Use Games Area):

  • 96.3% of KS2 Children say they do more or the same amount of exercise than last year.
  • 62% of KS2 Children say they do more exercise than they did last year
  • 79% of KS2 children use the MUGA either ‘every day’ or ‘most days

Great workers, very accommodating and have worked fantastically. We are very happy.

Pentagon Play recently completed a range of extensive works throughout the school, updating play areas for the children, building EYFS canopies and reading Hobbit Holes. From start to finish the team were professional, hardworking and helpful in all areas. The initial quote was very detailed and included helpful 1:1 sessions, where changes were quickly made following suggestions from ourselves as well as useful additions from the pentagon team. Despite the onset of Covid-19 our works were still able to go ahead due to the professionalism of the Pentagon team. The school liaison Dan was always available both on and off site to answer any questions and deal with any problems before they arose. The contractors were polite, helpful and willing to adjust a work schedule at the last minute to meet the everchanging needs of the school. The team made small changes to the ground free of charge to ensure that the equipment they installed would be long lasting. We had 7 different projects on the go and at no time did it feel like we had contractors on site due to their tidiness and professionalism. The children absolutely love their new equipment which is clearly of a very high standard. It has added to their learning and enjoyment on a day to day basis. The aftercare was also of a very high standard with a post works check and any snags immediately fixed. I would not hesitate to recommend Pentagon Play for their professionalism, high standards and very reasonable costs.

The contractors were very friendly and accommodating. They have got on with the job in poor weather conditions and always had a positive, approachable, can-do attitude. They're a credit to the company.

Looks great, good advice given.

The new outdoor playground has made such a difference to our nursery.  The children’s physical development has greatly improved in such a short amount of time.  Our children are really happy to be outside in all weathers.  The playground has changed everything for our nursery and we are so grateful for everything.

Beth Ireland – The Lancaster School, Lincolnshire

From the beginning to the end we have been impressed with the efficiency and enthusiasm given to this project. Our school has needed an uplift for some time and this has been a perfect project for our children and community. The installation was easy, the builders were brilliant, they were so friendly and accommodating. We are so pleased that we did this as the impact on our school has been huge. The children love playing on it and love using it for their learning. They have found new ways to use the imagination station and have even used it as a den! We look forward to working with you again
