What is the Sports Premium?
The Government provides primary schools with annual Primary PE & Sports Premium funding to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The funding amount received by schools is based upon the number of children of primary age at the school.
The DfE Vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium is:
ALL pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
The funding has been provided to ensure impact against the following objective and indicators:
- To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools.
- The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
- The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
- Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
- Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
- Increased participation in competitive sport
