Marlborough Primary School

PE and Sport Premium

Marlborough Primary School

At Marlborough Primary School we believe all children should have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age can build a lifetime habit of participation. 

Physical activity has numerous benefits for children’s physical health, as well as their mental wellbeing and children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers. Ensuring that pupils have access to sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits for pupils and schools, improving behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement. 


  • CPD for staff to ensure high quality teaching and learning.
  • Organising a variety of active clubs for children to attend both in school and after school.
  • Embedding physical activities within other curriculum subjects.
  • Providing staff with the knowledge of resources to use for active learning breaks
  • Enhancing the play time and lunch time equipment to allow for more physical activity opportunities.
  • Ensuring outside surfaces are suitable for active play.
  • Spend the sports premium funding effectively to have ensure it has a sustainable impact.


Children will be inspired to lead healthy, active lifestyles. Through PE & Sport our children will learn to develop the important qualities of discipline, resilience, communication, team work and ambition, leading to improved concentration, attitude, and well-being. They will be equipped with the basic cognitive, social and physical skills needed to take part in a variety of sports.


The chief medical officer advises that children should be active for up to 60 minutes per day and schools are responsible for 30 minutes per day. 

Using the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding we can ensure that children meet this target. This Government funding should be used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered by schools. 

This means that schools use the premium to: 

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport that your school provides 
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years 


Schools should use the premium to secure improvements in the 5 Key indicators.




Healthy Schools


The healthy schools rating scheme is a voluntary scheme for schools that recognises and encourages their contribution to supporting pupils’ health and wellbeing.

Schools will be able to determine how well they are promoting healthy eating and physical activity by completing a self-assessment and receiving a rating based on their answers.

They will receive an award for their performance, and information on how they might improve their healthy living policies.
