PE and Sport Premium
WHAT IS ‘PE AND SPORT PREMIUM’ FUNDING?
The Primary PE and Sport Premium is an initiative that aims to help increase and improve the PE and sporting opportunities for children. It was first provided in the 2013/14 academic year and the current government has pledged to continue this funding until 2020.
PE and Sport Premium funding is provided jointly by the Department for Education, the Department for Health and Culture and the Department for Media and Sport. It has been allocated to primary school headteachers and is ring-fenced, meaning that it can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.
The Government believes that headteachers and school leaders should decide how to use the funding for PE and Sports in school. They are held accountable for the decisions they make through:
The performance outcomes of all pupils compared with their peers
The Ofsted inspection framework, under which inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, in particular in those areas where specific funding has been provided
The reports that schools are required to publish online for Parents
All primary schools receive a lump sum plus money per pupil aged 5 or over on roll. Here at Lubavitch Girls' Primary School we aim is to use the funding effectively to ensure that standards of learning and achievement in PE and Sports are raised, with all children, regardless of their background, engaging in physical activity as part of the curriculum and extra-curricular provision.
This is an extremely important and successful government initiative. Research evidence shows that education and health are closely linked. One of the key points from the evidence, reported by Public Health England, states that “A positive association exists between academic attainment and physical activity levels of pupils.”
