Sports Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

Physical Education


At Charlton we aim to ensure that all children take part in, and enjoy, appropriate sporting activities, both as part of the curriculum provision and in the lunchtime and after school clubs that are provided. We understand the importance and the long-term impact sport and physical education can have on our children’s lives – not only now but also in their future.


Sporting Provision

We encourage the children to both compete with themselves and each other and to co-operate as part of a team. Our annual sports day has a traditional, competitive nature together with a series of activities that all children can enjoy and fully participate in. As well as this, we also hold an annual ‘Sports Week’ where the children have the opportunity to try new sports, work alongside children across the school, and to give the Upper Key Stage 2 children opportunities to lead activities for the younger pupils. This, we have found, helps to promote independence, trust and leadership skills.


In addition, to regular lessons held at school, the children:

  • Visit the local swimming pool for sessions with specialist teachers
  • Active Learning throughout the day
  • Take part in forest school
  • Year 6 participate in an outdoor adventure week
  • Children are encouraged to attend a range of after-school sporting activities either in school or at local clubs.
  • Participate in many local competitions and participation events, both within our collaboration, academy and at county level.


We are an active member of the Dover School Games, and are proud to have achieved the Gold School Games Mark, 3 years in a row. We are currently working towards the Platinum Award.

Our older children play an important role in ensuring all children across the school are active. If this is an area they show a particular interest or aptitude for, they can either be a Play leader or a member of the Sports Crew. These roles help develop lifelong leadership skills and enhance independence and motivation across the school.


We welcome a variety of visitors (including a GB Paralympian, Kent Cricket players and gymnasts) to our school, to encourage and enthuse the children to work hard and aim high.


We are also very proud of our success rate in many inter school competitions. (Please see our school blog for further details.)



Sports Premium Funding

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.


At Charlton School the Governors and Headteacher believe the purpose of the Sports Premium should be:

  • To sustain and improve the provision of P.E. and School Sport through out the whole school.
  • To ensure that teachers and support staff offer high quality Physical Education as part of the school curriculum and that continual professional development for existing staff is on-going.
  • To ensure that we have the correct equipment to enable high quality delivery of the curriculum.
  • To provide appropriate competitive School Sport opportunities for all children who wish to take part.
  • To identify and engage with those children who are less active and therefore, less likely to choose sport and exercise as a lifestyle choice.
  • To work in partnership with other organisations (SSco) and schools to maximise the potential of the P.E. and School sport funding and make best use of the facilities within the school grounds
  • To give a broad base of extra- curricular activities for those who wish to take part.
