PE and Sport Primary 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. The Government are investing £150 million on this funding each year until 2016, and in principle up to 2020.
Most schools with primary-age pupils receive the PE and Sport Premium, the Department for Education give further details on these: https://www.gov.uk/pe-and-sport-premium-for-primary-schools
All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
Objective: To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and School Sport in primary schools.
We would expect indicators of such improvement to include:
- 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
