It is a statutory requirement for primary schools to publish, on their school websites, how much PE and sport premium funding they receive; a full breakdown of how they have or will spend the funding; the effect of the premium on pupils’ PE and sports participation and attainment and how the school will make sure these improvements are sustainable.
It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following five key indicators:
- 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
How to use the primary PE and sport premium
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. This means that you should use the premium to:
- Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers.
- Make improvements to the current teaching of PE that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
- 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 clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs.
- Run sports activities with other schools.
