Sports Premium Funding
Sports and PE Grant 2023-2024
Chalton Lower School receives an annual Sport and PE Grant from the government to help maintain and develop physical education and sport in schools.
The funding is based on a lump sum plus an amount based on the number of keystage 1 and 2 pupils on the 2023 January Census. For 2023-2024 [September to August] the grant for Chalton Lower School will be approximately £16,473.
When using the Sports Premium funding, schools must ensure impact against the following 5 Key Indicators:
- The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.
- The profile of PE, Sport and Physical Activity being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.
- Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and Sport.
- Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
- Increased participation in competitive sport.

- KS2 led the KS1 and EYFS as part of the Young Leaders Programme.
- Staff are more confident in delivering high level quality PE and Games
- Early Years Class is included in the PE delivery by Luton Town Community Trust
- All the children were engaged in the four minute run which starts our PE lessons. They can now all run without stopping.
- They all enjoy having the opportunity to take part in the sporting events, even though we don’t win! We have been quite successful in the Tag Rugby tournaments over the past two years. The children have benefited from working with a local rugby coach and the children have demonstrated their understanding of the game at the tournament.
The school is intending to use some of the money to replace the markings on the playground. This will be carried over from 2022/2023 as it was proposed for the summer 2023.
Next year we will use Creative Sport Coaching for our PE provision. Staff continue these skills in the second lesson of the week thus maintaining their teaching skills.
