Sport Premium

Sports Premium Statement

The Sports Premium is allocated to primary schools to support schools in promoting healthy lifestyles. The UK Chief Medical Officers recommend that all children and young people should take part in moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity for at least 60 minutes every day. All children should have equal access to high-quality PE provision and opportunities to experience and participate in a wide range of sports and physical activities. Academic achievement can improve in school because of the benefits children can gain.

Purpose of Funding

The Sports Premium is used to help us to achieve these aims. We make improvements to the teaching of PE and ensure that staff develop their own skills. In turn, pupils receive quality PE lessons and their participation and enjoyment of PE increases. We are able to offer a broad and more equal range of sports activities for all pupils.

The four objectives of the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding are:

  • To improve the quality of existing PE teaching through continuing professional learning in PE for generalists, so that all primary pupils improve their health, skills and physical literacy, and have broader exposure to a range of sports
  • To increase participation levels in competitive sport and healthy activity of pupils, and maintain these into adolescence
  • To increase the quality of initial teacher training in PE and sport, and to promote PE specialisation in primary level workforce
  • For schools to show that they understand and value the benefits of high quality PE and sport, including its use as a tool for whole school improvement.
