Sports Premium

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6. This funding must be used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PESSPA (PE, School Sport & Physical Activity).

We use the premium to:

  • Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that we already offer;
  • Build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.

There are 5 key indicators that we should expect to see improvement across:

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - Chief Medical Officers guidelines recommend that primary school pupils undertake at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day 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.

As part of the funding criteria we are required to publish details on our website of how we plan to spend the monies and a review of the impact on pupil outcomes.
