The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. The Government intends to spend over £450 million on this funding over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016. Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. We are fortunate that we receive £8,000 and an additional payment of £5 per pupil.
Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, but they are free to choose the best way of using the money.
For example, we can use our funding to:
- hire specialist PE teachers
- hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
- provide existing staff with teaching resources to help them teach PE and sport
- support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
- run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
- run sports activities with other schools
Since September 2013, Ofsted inspections report on how primary schools spend their PE and sport premium funding. As a result, we must publish details of how we spend our PE and sport premium funding.
