Walter Evans Church of England Primary & Nursery School

Sports Premium

We are proud to be only one of two schools in Derby City that have been awarded the School Games PLATINUM Award.  This is the highest award that can be achieved from this government-led scheme and represents our ongoing commitment to delivering competitive school sport in a positive environment, as well as demonstrating our commitment to encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle throughout school and life beyond.

We are extremely proud of our pupils for their dedication to all aspects of physical activity and school sport, including those young leaders and officials who help to make our intra-school competitions possible and staff who ensure all our pupils experience at least one festival or competition each year.  We recognise the power physical activity and school sport can have in improving a child’s physical and mental well-being as well as their social, emotional and cognitive skills.

PE and Sport


In April 2013, the Government announced new funding for physical education (PE) and sport to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision in schools.  In 2016, it was announced that funding would be doubled from 2017 -2020, as a result of income acquired through a levy imposed on soft drink sales, known as the ‘sugar tax’. The funding is ring-fenced and is allocated directly to primary schools across England, with a lump sum being allocated to each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism.

How is the money spent?

Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality, breadth and profile of PE and sport so that pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of. For further information on how much PE and sport premium schools receive and advice on how it should be spent, click on the link below.

In order to ensure all young people have access to high-quality PE, physical activity and school sport, schools are required to publish details of their sporting provision on their websites. Below is our most recent PE and sports premium action plan showing how we intend to utilise our funding across the school to improve our PE and sport provision.
