Sport Premium

The government provides ring-fenced funding, jointly with the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, to help improve the provision of Physical Education and sport in Primary Schools. This funding was introduced for the academic year 2013-2014 and has continued to date..

 

We use this money to improve confidence amongst staff in the delivery of high quality PE lessons across the school, provide a wider range of sporting activities to enhance engagement, organize and participate in competitive sport and ensure children have a very good understanding of healthy lifestyles. We feel this is the most effective and efficient way for the funding to have a long lasting and positive effect on future learning and physical development of children within our school.

 

Vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium

ALL pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport

 

The funding has been provided to ensure impact against the following OBJECTIVE: ​

To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools. It is important to emphasise that the focus of spending must lead to long lasting impact against the vision (above) that will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding. ​

It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:

1. the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles

2. the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement

3. increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport

4. broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils

5. increased participation in competitive sport


Under the Ofsted Schools Inspection Framework 2015, inspectors will assess how effectively leaders use the Primary PE and Sport Premium and measure its impact on outcomes for pupils, and how effectively governors hold them to account for this. Schools are required to publish details of how they spend this funding and the effect it has had on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment

 

 

HOW WE USE THE PRIMARY PE AND SPORT PREMIUM

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. This means that you should use the premium to:

 

• develop or add to the PE and sport  activities that your school already offers

• make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

For example, you can use your funding to:

• hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers 

• provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively

• introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport 

• support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs

• run sport competitions 

• increase pupils’ participation in the School Games

• run sports activities with other schools

You should not use your funding to:

• employ coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements - these should come out of your core staffing budgets  

• teach the minimum requirements of the national curriculum – including those specified for swimming
