What is the School Sport Premium?
Schools with primary age pupils receive the PE and Sport Premium. The funding is based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. This academic year sees the funding dramatically increase and HLC now receives a lump sum of £16,000 plus £10 per pupil which is funds directly linked to ensuring schools achieve the following:
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport you offer.
This means that you should use the premium to:
- develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your 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
There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:
- the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
- 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
