Sports Premium

Sport Premium is funding for primary schools aimed at sustainably improving the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools as well as encouraging the development of healthy, active lifestyles in all children. This year each school will now receive £16,000 plus £10 per pupil. This year our school received £17,700

Through this funding, pupils at William Levick Primary School are offered a wide range of exciting sporting opportunities throughout the year. We work with SHAPE School Sports Partnership to coordinate a range of competitions and events for our pupils in all year groups. These include taster events (where children can experience a range of different sports and then are signposted to local clubs), in-school competitions and out of school competitions, competing against other schools. 

Extra Curriculum Clubs offered in 2022-2023 were:

  • Football
  • Dance
  • Basketball
  • Multi-sports
  • Athletics
  • Fielding games (such as cricket/ rounders)
  • Archery.

This year (2022-2023) our School’s Sports Premium Funding has enabled us to do the following:-

  • Ensure all children across the age ranges have had the opportunity to participate in a wide range of sports throughout the year, including outdoor adventure type activities.
  • Subscription to SHAPE sports partnership, allowing access to a range of sporting tournaments and festivals. Each year group has had the opportunity to participate in a sporting event off-site, this has included multi sports, active maths/ literacy, dodgeball, early rider, racket festivals, dance and yoga.
  • Year 6 children had opportunity to take part in a sporting transition event, enabling them to meet children from other local feeder schools.
  • Participate in whole school events, such as dance, athletics and multi sports.
  • Participate in competitive events, such as rugby, football, athletics, cricket, tennis, bouldering and basketball. Our girls' cricket team were NE Derbyshire winners.  Our Year 6 athletics team reached the Derbyshire finals of Quadkids, where individual children won first in the girls' sprint and first and third in the boys' long distance run. We also came first in the Sheffield Bouldering competition and first in the NE Derbyshire tennis tournament. 
  • Allow staff to work alongside specialised sports coaches in a range of sports, such as dance and tennis, in addition to teachers delivering high quality PE lessons using the inclusive scheme Real PE.
  • All children in KS2 have been given the opportunity to engage in the Bikeability programme.
  • Provide a greater range of equipment and activities to keep them active during break and lunchtimes.
  • Maintain the high profile of PE and sport in school. We also celebrate Sporting Values each half term with a special sports assembly.
