Sports Premium 2017/2018

Sports Premium 2017/2018

The Government provides funding for school to develop sport and healthy lifestyles. This funding is called the Sports Premium.

School must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport we offer.

This means that we use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within our school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

There are 5 key indicators that school should plan to see improvement across:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 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
