PE & Sport Premium
What is the P.E. and Sports Premium?
The government has provided funding of £150 million per annum since 2013 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. In September 2017 this funding was doubled. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport; the money is given directly to schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their pupils. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. Please follow the link to the Department for Education to find out more about this funding.
Purpose of The Funding
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE and sport they offer however; they have some freedom to choose how they do this. There are 5 key indicators that we monitor improvement across specifically:
- The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
- 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

We recognise the important role that Physical Education (P.E.) plays and the positive influence that is has on concentration, attitude and academic achievement of pupils. It is our aim that all pupils who leave us at the end of Year 6, do so with the habit of playing and enjoying sports and, the skills and the motivation, confidence and discipline necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle.
