School Sports Premium

The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils during curriculum and extra curricular activities. This can be measured by the quality of teaching, the range of activities and sports offered, the level of participation across the school and also how the children develop physically and technically. 

What does this means regarding your PE provision?

The PE curriculum states that:

Key Stage One (PE Curriculum)

  • Pupils should develop core movement, become increasingly competent and confident and access a broad range of opportunities to extend their agility, balance and co-ordination, individually and with others
  • They should be able to engage in competitive (both against self and others) and co-operative physical activities, in a range of increasingly challenging situations

Key Stage Two (PE Curriculum)

  • Pupils should continue to implement and develop a broader range of skills, learning how to use them in different ways and to link them to make actions and sequences of movement
  • They should enjoy communicating, collaborating and competing with each other
  • They should develop an understanding of how to succeed in different activities and sports and learn how to evaluate and recognise their own success

Sports Premium

  • When making the judgement on the quality of the school’s leadership and management, Ofsted Inspectors must assess and report on how effectively the funding is being used to improve PE and sport provision. In addition, inspectors must take into account, how increasing participation in PE and sport is helping all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of. When evaluating the curriculum, inspectors will consider pupils’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development.
  • Schools must also publish how the Sports Premium is being spent and what impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment.
