PE Premium

The government provides funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is allocated to all primary schools. providing a dedicated resource to increase PE and school sport provision in their schools.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. It was initially announced this funding would run for two academic years 2013-2014 and 2014-2015.

The Chancellor of the Exchequer's Autumn statement revealed that the Sport Premium will now be extended into the academic year 2015/2016, having originally only been guaranteed for two years. The funding is allocated directly to primary schools, providing them with dedicated resource to increase PE and school sport provision in their schools, and was due to end in Summer 2015.

As a school we receive £8000 plus £5 per pupil.

PE Premium Principles

  •  The money will directly impact on the quality of teaching and learning in PE lessons and broaden the range of school sport opportunities for pupils.
  • The focus of all funded improvements will be sustainability.
  • Funding will be directed towards the professional development of teaching and support staff to develop their ability to deliver high quality PE and school sport.
  • Through team teaching with specialist PE teachers and coaches alongside staff training sessions, and the gaining of recognised coaching qualifications, staff will improve their subject knowledge and ability to deliver high quality PE and school sport.
  • The ongoing upskilling of staff will contribute to ensuring improvements are sustainable.
  • Funding will be targeted to ensure provision for all learners provides appropriate levels of challenge and support through clubs, competition and extended sports provision.
  • Funding will also be targeted at ensuring facilities and resources are of the highest possible quality encouraging the widest range of possible opportunities e.g. enough equipment to ensure active participation from all pupil throughout all aspects of a PE lesson, together with equipment to provide opportunities to take part in non-traditional school sports e.g. tchoukball and table tennis.  By investing in high quality equipment and facilities with long term guarantees opportunities will be sustainable.
  • Funding will be targeted to ensure the rurality of our school location does not negatively impact on the opportunities for our pupils.  It will also be used to ensure equality of opportunity in relation to attendance at wider sporting opportunities.
  • Funding will facilitate the development of the leadership of PE across our school.  This will ensure that leadership is strong enough for continued improvement beyond the years of funding.
