Sports Premium

Rationale

All young people should have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age can build a lifetime habit of participation and is central to meeting the government’s ambitions for a world-class education system.

Physical activity has numerous benefits for children and young people’s physical health, as well as their mental wellbeing (increasing self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and lowering anxiety and depression), and children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers. Ensuring that pupils have access to sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits for pupils and schools, improving behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement.

Accountability

Schools will be held to account for the spending of the sports premium funding. They should use the sport premium to secure improvements in the following five key indicators:

  • Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity.
  • 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.

Online Reporting

Schools must publish details of how they spend the PE and sport premium funding by the end of the summer term or by 31 July at the latest. If schools have any carried forward funding from the previous academic year, schools should show separately how this funding has been spent and confirm that it has been spent before 31 March.

Online reporting must include:

  • The amount of PE and sport premium received;
  • A full breakdown of how it has been spent;
  • The impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE, physical activity, and sport participation and attainment;
  • How the improvements will be sustainable in the future.
