PE and Sport Premium



Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (PESSPA) they offer.

This means that the premium should be used to:

  • develop or add to the PESSPA activities that school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

Funding can be used 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 School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools

To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools, the 5 indicators of improvement include:

  1. • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
  2. • the profile of PESSPA 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

In light of the above, our PE and Sports provision is regularly reviewed.  Audits of PE and Sport are carried out to ascertain specific areas of focus. For example, CPD support and after school activities with regards to inclusion and targeting children who are not currently participating in after school activities. Our aim is to continue to develop our outstanding physical education and school sport offer for all children in order to achieve the above objectives. Completion of the self review template based on a model produced by the Youth Sport Trust showed that in all nine categories our practice was embedded with a few small targets to focus our attention on.
