PE and Sports Premium Funding
Aims for PE Sports Funding 2022-2023
Over the course of this academic year, we aim to improve our PE and sports provision in a number of ways.
- To encourage all children to be physically active at break and lunch times by providing high quality playground equipment and training sports leaders to lead physical activity.
- To develop the teaching and learning of PE through close work with outside coaches and PE companies e.g. LUFC, Active Leeds.
- To ensure that all children understand the importance of living a healthy, active lifestyle by promoting these in lessons and through enhancements such as Healthy Week.
- To offer a wide range of physical activities, both in curriculum time and extra curricular sessions.
- To offer a wide range of competitive sporting opportunities for children of all ages.
We will report on the Sports Premium spending in the Summer term.
Below is the report for the academic year 2022-2023.
General Information about the ‘Sport Premium’
Primary school PE and sport funding
The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2020 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school headteachers.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
Funding for schools will be calculated by reference to the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11), as recorded in the annual schools census in January 2013.
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding might include:
- hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE
- supporting and engaging the least active children through new or additional Change4Life clubs
- paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
- providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport
- running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games
- buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and sport
- providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs
- pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools.
From September 2013, schools will be held to account over how they spend their additional, ring-fenced funding. Ofsted will strengthen the coverage of PE and sport within the 'Inspectors’ handbook' and supporting guidance so that both schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the school’s overall provision.
One year on, Ofsted will carry out a survey reporting on the first year’s expenditure of additional funding and its impact.
Schools will also be required to include details of their provision of PE and sport on their website, alongside details of their broader curriculum, so that parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within and beyond the school day.
