PE & Sports Funding

Following the London 2012 Olympics, the Government agreed to invest over £450million in school sports funding up to 2016 and in the last Parliament this was agreed to be extended, partially funded for by the introduction of the “sugar-tax”, and linked to the Government’s Childhood Obesity Plan.

This is known as Sport Premium funding and is ring fenced in school to be spent solely on school sport and P.E. This year (2023/24) we will receive £18,150.

It is important that the grant is used effectively and based on school need. The Education Inspection Framework makes it clear focus will be on

whether leaders and those responsible for governors all understand their respective roles and perform these in a way that enhances the effectiveness of the school.

Under the Quality of Education Ofsted inspectors consider:

Intent: Curriculum design, coverage and appropriateness
Implementation: Curriculum delivery, Teaching (pedagogy) and Assessment
Impact: Attainment and progress

Schools must use the funding to make additional sustainable improvements to the quality of Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (PESSPA) they offer. This means that the Primary PE and Sport Premium should be used to:

  • Develop or add to the PESSPA activities that our 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 Primary PE and sport premium should not be used to fund capital spend projects that the school’s budget should fund

Schools are required to publish details of how they spend this funding, including any underspend from the previous year, as well as on the impact it has on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment. All funding must be spent by 31st July 2024.
