PE and Sport Premium
What is PE and Sport Premium?
In 2013, the government pledged to provide additional funding to primary schools to improve PE and sport provisions. The funding is provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, and Media and Sport.
What is PE and Sports Premium for?
The funding is provided directly to primary schools and must only be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE, for all school children.
How much funding to Primary Schools receive?
For the 2017/18 academic year, each school will receive £16,000, plus an additional payment of £10 per pupil. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provisions in schools.
How are we obliged to spend the funding?
We are required to use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport we offer. The government lists five key indicators for which schools should expect to see an improvement.
· the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity, which amounts to at least 30 minutes per day whilst in school, as recommended by the Chief Medical Officer;
· the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement;
· increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport;
· broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils;
· increased participation in competitive sport.
