Welcome to St Anthony's Website. School reopens on Tuesday 4th June.

The Government provides additional funding each academic year in order to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools.


We received £9577. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools.


How we are spending the Sports Premium Funding:

PE/Sports Funding 2016-2017 9577
London PE & School Sport Network based at Bacon’s College 2100
Swimming Tuition Yr3-6 all year Sept 2016-July 2017 14500

At St Anthony's, we believe that PE teaches children the importance of teamwork, confidence and healthy living.


We use the PE Premium to achieve the following:

•investment in the professional development of staff at our school so they are best equipped to teach high quality Physical Education and school sport.

•membership of the London PE & School Sport Network based at Bacon’s College, Rotherhithe.

•an increase in the amount of competitive sport in which our children participate - running sport competitions, and increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games and inter school competitions.

•continued participation in local sports competitions/events organised by The London PE & School Sports Network.

•swimming lessons throughout the year for all children from Year 3 through to Year 6 to ensure all children continue to stretch and challenge their swimming ability.

•qualified sports coaches to work alongside staff for short PE modules eg gymnastics.

•inter-school competitions.

•sports professionals visiting the school to inspire our children.

•equipment to offer access to new sports and physical activities as relevant.


The impact of the Sports Premium funding:

We evaluate the impact of the Sports Premium funding as part of our normal self-evaluation and provision mapping arrangements. We look at how well we use our Sport Premium to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.


Children are expected to leave Year 6 being able to swim 25 metres unaided. However, nationally, only 49% achieve this target. The children at St Anthony’s swim weekly from Year 3 until they leave in Year 6 thanks to the Sports Funding. They achieve a much higher level of swimming than the national average resulting in the vast majority of children confidently swimming at least one length by the end of Year 6.

% of children who can swim 25m unaided September 2016 July 2017
Year 3 44% 63%
Year 4 51% 80%
Year 5 73% 84%
Year 6 80% 96%

There are increasing numbers of children able to swim a length as the year progresses and the percentage of children able to swim at least 25m more than doubles between the beginning of Year 3 and the end of Year 6 due to regular swimming lessons.
