SPORTS PREMIUM GRANT

The government believes that the sports premium, which is additional to main school funding, is the best way to address the current plans for a legacy after the London 2012 Olympic Games. The government recognises that physical education forms part of every child’s entitlement to a good education. It is unique in that it is taught through physical activity in weekly practical lessons both indoors and outdoors, in a wide range of physical, creative and aesthetic settings. It provides pupils with the generic skills, knowledge and understanding they need to become physically literate, and at the same time gives most of them their first regular experiences of sport. When taught well, physical education enthuses and inspires pupils to participate fully and develop a life-long love of physical activity, sport and exercise. The sports premium was introduced in 2013 and aims to improve the quality of provision in physical education and sport in every state primary school in England. On 17th July 2017 the Department for Education confirmed that the Primary PE and Sport Premium will double from September 2017.

We believe that through the additional funding we will be able to demonstrate an approach to Physical Activity that meets the 5 key indicators below:

Key indicator 1: The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that primary school children undertake at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day in school

Key indicator 2: The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement

Key indicator 3: Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport

Key indicator 4: Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils

Key indicator 5: Increased participation in competitive sport
