Sports Premium Funding
Sport Premium Overview
The government has provided additional funding since 2013 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. The government has continued to commit to the sports’ premium funding beyond 2020.
The Sports Premium Grant (SPG) is government funding to provide additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of all primary-aged pupils, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
Its aim is to:
develop or add to the Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (PESSPA) that the school already offers
build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
The government has outlined 5 key indicators against which the impact of the grant will be monitored.
Key indicator 1: The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
Key indicator 2: The profile of Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (PESSPA) being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
Key indicator 3: Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
Key indicator 4: Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
Key indicator 5: Increased participation in competitive sport
