P.E. & Sports Premium

The Use & Impact of Sports Premium at Marlfields


The Government is providing additional funding to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding in order to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to schools to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. All state-maintained schools, academies, middle schools, special schools and pupil referral units which have primary aged pupils will receive the funding.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Marlfields.  Please see our Sports Funding Policy.

Allocation & Impact Report of PE Sports Grant for Marlfields Primary Academy

We believe in a holistic approach to the development of sport and physical activity for all and encourage collaboration and partnership working to make the best use of resources and enhance PE and sport provision in order to raise participation and achievement for all pupils. Our rationale for the use of Sports Premium funding, which the Governors have agreed, are that it must be used so that:

  • all children benefit regardless of sporting ability,
  • the most able children are given the opportunity to compete in tournaments with other schools,
  • staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development,
  • some activities may be subsidised so that pupils do not miss out due to financial constraints,
  • we make use of collaborative and partnership working.

Great success as we completed just under 125 lengths with our team of nine in 55 minutes.  It was good to be back in the pool after two year of missing it through COVID-19 restrictions.

New Extra Curricular club on ARCHERY – great success!

Every Monday children enjoy learning a new skill – Archery.  This has been really popular and resulted in an after school club being run in the Autumn term to meet demand.

Our successful football team…..



In October 2015 we were nominated for the EVERYBODY SCHOOL OF THE YEAR 2015 within Cheshire East.  We went to the awards ceremony and came runner up for the Everybody School of the Year to Wilmslow High School.  Still a huge achievement out of 134 primary schools and 56 secondary schools in Cheshire East.  Well done to everyone!
