At Longman’s Hill we take part in lots of physical activity, both as part of our curriculum and as extra curricular activity. Please see the PE section of the website for details of what we do on a daily basis and the competitions we have been involved in.
What is the Sports Premium?
The government has provided funding of £150 million per annum since 2013/14 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and goes directly to schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all children. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
At Longman’s Hill, all of our children participate in 2 hours PE lessons per week. In addition to this they also participate in outdoor, active Forest School sessions for half a day per week for one full term. Swimming lessons take place too; these are in addition to the 2 hours PE for all children in Y3 and then across KS2 for children who have still not met the national curriculum standard for swimming by the end of Y3. We offer a great many sports clubs; four morning clubs (8am- 8.45am) and 3 after school clubs (3.15pm- 4.15pm). We use of PE funding to fund these clubs so that children can join free of charge. The type of club changes each term but we have run multi skills, athletics, dodgeball, rugby, cricket, football, netball, hockey, taekwondo to name a few.
Playtimes and lunchtimes are as active as possible. We use Play Leaders to organise games and have a wide selection of equipment for children to use; balls, skipping ropes, bats, cricket sets, hoola hoops, beanbags etc.
In Summer 2018, Longman’s Hill School was successfully awarded the Silver School games award which is a nationally recognised award.

What is Pupil Premium Funding?
- The pupil premium is a new form of funding in addition to main school funding to address the current underlying inequalities between children eligible for free school meals (FSM) and their peers by ensuring that funding to tackle disadvantage reaches the pupils who need it most.
- The Pupil Premium is allocated to schools and it is for schools to decide how the funding will be spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. The funding is allocated to schools per FSM pupil.
- Schools are free to spend the Pupil Premium as they see best. However they will be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding to support pupils from low-income families.
- To close the achievement gap by ensuring that any pupil at risk of underachieving are identified early and support and intervention is provided for those pupils. In particular those that are on FSM or Looked After Children.
- New measures will be included in the performance tables that will capture the achievement of those deprived pupils covered by the Pupil Premium.
- From September 2012, schools will be required to publish online information about how they have used the Premium. This will ensure that parents and others are made fully aware of the attainment of pupils covered by the Premium.
- The Pupil Premium is allocated to children from low-income families who are currently known to be eligible for FSM in both mainstream and non-mainstream settings and children who have been looked after continuously for more than six months.
- Schools are funded Pupil Premium @ £1300 per pupil for those whose families have registered for FSM. This includes any child who has been registered for FSM at any point during the past 6 years. Schools are also funded £1900 per pupil for Looked After Children.
- Each school may decide how best to use the funding and they are held accountable for how it has been used to support pupils from low income families.
