PE and sport premium
WHAT IS ‘PE AND SPORT PREMIUM’ FUNDING?
Primary PE and Sport Premium is an initiative that aims to help increase and improve the PE and sporting opportunities for children. It was first provided in the 2013/14 academic year and the current government has pledged to continue this funding until August 2024.
PE and Sport Premium funding is provided jointly by the Department for Education, the Department for Health and Culture and the Department for Media and Sport. It has been allocated to primary school headteachers and is ring-fenced, meaning that it can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.
PE and sport premium spending is used to improve in the following 5 key areas:
- Increasing all staff’s confidence, knowledge and skills in teaching PE and sport
- Increasing engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity and sport
- Raising the profile of PE and sport across the school, to support whole school improvement
- Offer a broader and more equal experience of a range of sports and physical activities to all pupils
- Increase participation in competitive sport
This year our allocated spend is £18,500 and we have planned our spend to include:
- Provide greater extracurricular sporting opportunities for all pupils.
- Provide CPD for staff
- Provide playground equipment
- Provide opportunities to try new sports and activities, particularly outdoor and adventurous activities and other sporting events.
