PE and Sport Premium
WHAT IS ‘PE AND SPORT PREMIUM’ FUNDING?
The School Sport & Activity Action Plan sets out the government’s commitment to ensuring that children and young people have access to at least 60 minutes of sport and physical activity per day. It recommends 30 minutes of this is delivered during the school day (in line with the Chief Medical Officers guidelines which recommend an average of at least 60 minutes per day across the week).
With this in mind, the Government has confirmed that the Primary PE and Sport Premium will continue for academic years 2023/24 and 2024/25 with a total of over £600m across the two years, with funding provided by the Department for Education and the Department for Health and Social Care. The sport premium grant must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
The Government believes that headteachers and school leaders should decide how to use the funding for PE and Sports in school. They are held accountable for the decisions they make through:
- The performance outcomes of all pupils compared with their peers
- The Ofsted inspection framework, under which inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, in particular in those areas where specific funding has been provided
- The reports that schools are required to publish online for parents
All primary schools receive a lump sum of £16,000 plus £10 per pupil aged 5 or over on roll. Here at Hawley we aim is to use the funding effectively to ensure that standards of learning and achievement in PE and Sports are raised, with all children, regardless of their background, engaging in physical activity as part of the curriculum and extra-curricular provision.
