What is it?
In March 2013 the government announced that they would introduce a dedicated primary P.E. and Sports Premium that would go directly to primary school head teachers so that they could decide how best to use it to provide sporting activities for pupils. The government has since announced that they would continue the P.E. funding in Primary Schools, and have recently confirmed that they will be investing for the academic year 2023/24.
Schools are held accountable for how they utilise this money based on 5 Key Indicators:
- The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 8 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school.
- The profile of PE and sport is 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.
Since September 2013, Ofsted inspections have reported on P.E. and sport provision and on how schools spend their additional funding. Schools are accountable and are required to publish, on their websites, details of how they spend (or will spend) their P.E. and Sport Premium funding. They must also include detail about the impact this funding has on pupils’ P.E. and sport participation and attainment.
How we are using it at Dane Royd J & I School
We have used the funding, at Dane Royd, to ensure that children have the most qualified teachers and instructors during their P.E. lessons. This has included buying in training and support for teachers through a PE planning, delivery and assessment tool. We have also invested heavily in a sports coach, who is tasked with working alongside all teachers. Some of the funding has been used to increase the range of extra-curricular activities and subsidised or funded a number of these clubs. In addition, we have used the money to promote a healthy and active lifestyle through a targeted lunchtime clubs and before school clubs.
