Alderwood’s “Spirit of the Games“

Physical Education (PE) is an integral part of the curriculum at Alderwood.  We understand the positive impact these early experiences can have on the physical and mental well-being of our pupils and therefore constantly strive to ensure all pupils gain fun and stimulating PE lessons and access to quality school and borough competitions. 

The government have also recognised the positive impact PE can have, and this academic year have provided additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 - 2020 to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.  Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.

Alderwood Primary School’s current £17,680 allocation for the year has been confirmed here:


When we should be receiving is stated:


“Academies, free schools and CTCs

If you are a new academy, free school or CTC, or if you are teaching eligible pupils for the first time in the academic year 2017 to 2018, you receive:

7/12 of your total funding allocation on 1 February 2018

5/12 of your total funding allocation on 1 May 2018”


Therefore £10,313 should be received on 1st February and £7,366 on 1st May.

The attached AfPE document gives a breakdown of how we plan to spend the £17,680 once received.
