From September 2013 the Government allocated funding directly to primary schools to support the provision and quality of PE and sport delivered in schools. Every school with more than 17 primary aged pupils receives £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Schools have to spend the funding on improving their PE and sport provision.
The expectation is that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:
The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
The profile of PE and sport being 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
Under the new Inspection Framework, Ofsted inspectors will assess how effectively leaders use the Primary PE and Sport Premium and measure its impact on outcomes for pupils, and how effectively governors hold them to account for this. Improvements should enhance, rather than maintain existing provision.
