Sport Premium Funding

How we use our PE and sport premium

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport you offer.

This means that we can use the premium to:

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

  • build capacity and capability within our school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

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

  • 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

For example, we will use our funding to:

  • provide staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities

  • introduce new sports, dance or other activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities

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

  • enter or run more sport competitions

  • partner with other schools to run sports activities and clubs

  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games

  • encourage pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support sport and physical activity within the school

  • provide additional swimming provision targeted to pupils not able to meet the swimming requirements of the national curriculum

  • embed physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school, active playgrounds and active teaching
