P.E. and Sport Premium

SPORTS PREMIUM FUNDING

 

Department for Education's Vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium:

'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.'

 

In April 2013 as a Legacy of the Olympic Games 2012, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.

 

The funding has been provided to ensure impact against the following OBJECTIVE:        

To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools. It is important to emphasise that the focus of spending must lead to long lasting impact against the vision (above) that will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding.          

 

In the 2017-2018 academic year, this was increased. Whitwell Primary School's allocated funding for the academic year 2017-18 is £18,260 plus £10 per pupil (Y1-Y6 as Jan 2017 census).


It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5-18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.
  • 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
