Primary PE and Sports Premium Funding - an explanation

 An explanation:-

The government are committed to improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools through funding which has been allocated to primary schools.

The funding is ring-fenced and so can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

How schools should use the Primary PE and Sport premium funding:

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. This means that they should use the premium to:

- develop or add to the PE and sport activities that their school already offers

- make improvements that will benefit all pupils joining the school in future years.


How can we do this?

Schools can allocate the funding to :

- hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers

- provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively

- introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport

- support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports activities such as after school clubs

- run sport competitions

- increase pupils’ participation in the sports events with other schools

- run sports activities with other schools

Schools should not use their funding to:

- employ coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements - these should come out of your core staffing budgets

- teach the minimum requirements of the national curriculum - including those specified for swimming (or, in the case of academies and free schools, to teach your existing PE curriculum)

Who is accountable?

Since September 2013, Ofsted inspections report on PE and sport provision within schools along with how the additional funding is spent. The government also hold schools accountable by requiring them to publish, on their websites, details of how they spend (or will spend) their PE and sport grant. This must also include detail about the impact this funding has on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment.

Water, water!

This week the school were lucky enough to have a visit from Mr Paul Tingle from Severn Trent. He gave a very amusing assembly on the importance of saving water, which the children really enjoyed.
