Vision for PE & Sport Premium

All schools have a central role to play in supporting all pupils to live healthy active lives. This is particularly true of primary schools where the foundations of positive and enjoyable participation in regular physical activity should be established.

Our vision is for ALL pupils to leave primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sports.

Department for Education Guidance

The DFE states that all primary school pupils must have access to at least 30 minutes of physical activity during the school day, alongside high-quality PE provision taught by confident and knowledgeable teachers and opportunities to experience and participate in a wide range of sport and physical activities. Schools must use funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education, sport and physical activity they provide This means that schools must use the Primary PE and sport premium to:

  • Build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
  • Develop or add to the physical education, sport and physical activity that they already offer.

PE and sport premium grant funding is used by schools to meet these aims.

As a school we allocate our sports premium with the aim of ensuring an improvement against the following five key indicators:

1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles.
2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for developing pupils’ mental health and wellbeing.
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.

Schools are required to publish details of how they have spent the funding allocation and the impact it has had on pupils PE and sport participation and attainment.
