What is it?
The PE and Sport Premium is a government funding initiative designed to help primary schools improve the quality of PE and sport activities they offer.
Schools receive PE and Sport Premium funding based on the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6. For the academic year September 2018 to July 2019 schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1,000 per pupil. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
For the academic year September 2017 to July 2018, Darley Churchtown Primary School received £16,891 of PE and Sports Premium funding.
For the current academic year September 2018 to July 2019, Darley Churchtown Primary School will receive £16,891 of PE and Sports Premium funding.
We are very pleased that the doubled Primary PE and Sports Premium will remain in place for the 2018/19 academic year. Nadhim Zahawi, the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Children and Families, made the announcement in March 2018 that the funding will remain at the increased rate. Nadhim Zahawi said, ‘…we know that schools are using their premium to support and involve the least active children. 51% of schools surveyed as part of an independent evaluation said they were targeting those who do not always actively participate but we can do more.’
Schools are encouraged to build on the work that they have already done using the premium to ensure that it builds the capacity and capability for all pupils and that what we do now continues to impact upon pupils in the future.
There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:
Our vision for PE and Sport
To offer children opportunities to:
What are our main barriers to children's progress in PE and Sports?
What are we spending our PE and Sports Premium on this year?
For as long as the school receives the PE and Sports Premium funding all of the above actions are sustainable through ongoing development and improvement in staff skills and confidence and through the increasing engagement and participation in daily physical activity, extra-curricular activities and inter school competitions and events.
