Sports Premium

The Government is investing £450 million per year in the improvement of the quality of the PE and sporting activities offered to children in primary schools.

Schools will receive a lump sum of £8,000 each, with an additional £5 per pupil ‘top up’. This funding is to be used for PE and school sport.

The premium is used in the following ways:

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