Sports Premium

 

 

Government guidance on the use of the Sports Premium funding:

 

 

The School Sport and Activity Action Plan set out government’s commitment to ensuring that children and young people have access to at least 60 minutes of sport and physical activity per day, with a recommendation of 30 minutes of this delivered during the school day (in line with the Chief Medical Officer guidelines which recommend an average of at least 60 minutes per day across the week).

 

The PE and Sport Premium can help primary schools to achieve this aim, providing primary schools with £320m of government funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered through their core budgets. It is allocated directly to schools so they have the flexibility to use it in the way that works best for their pupils.

 

How to use the PE and sport premium:

 

 

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of their physical education (PE), physical activity and sport.

 

This means that you should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport that your school provides
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future year

 

Schools should use the premium to secure improvements in the following 5 key indicators.

 

 

Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity, for example by:

  • providing targeted activities or support to involve and encourage the least active children
  • encouraging active play during break times and lunchtimes
  • establishing, extending or funding attendance of school sport clubs and activities and holiday clubs, or broadening the variety offered
  • adopting an active mile initiative
  • raising attainment in primary school swimming to meet requirements of the national curriculum before the end of key stage 2. Every child should leave primary school able to swim

 

 

Profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement, for example by:

  • encouraging pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support sport and physical activity within the school (such as ‘sport leader’ or peer-mentoring schemes)
  • embedding physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school, active break times and active lessons and teaching

 

 

Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport, for example by:

  • providing staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively to all pupils, and embed physical activity across your school
  • hiring qualified sports coaches to work alongside teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities

 

 

Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils, for example by:

  • introducing new sports and physical activities (such as dance, yoga or fitness sessions) to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities
  • partnering with other schools to run sport activities and clubs
  • providing more (or broadening the variety of) extra-curricular activities after school in the 3 to 6pm window, delivered by the school or other local sport organisations

 

 

Increased participation in competitive sport, for example by:

  • increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • organising, coordinating or entering more sport competitions or tournaments within the school or across the local area, including those run by sporting organisations.
