Sports Premium

What is the sports premium?

The government has provided funding of £150 million pounds per annum for PE and sports in primary schools. The funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport. Sports premium should develop or add to the PE and sport activities and to build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made will benefit pupils in future years.

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

1.      The engagement of all pupils in physical activity. Children should engage in 60 mins of physical activity a day of which 30 mins should be in school.
2.      The profile of PE and sport is 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 sports.
