Sports Premium

What is PE and Sport Premium?

The Government has continued to pledge funding to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This is the Sports Premium funding.

Schools must spend this designated additional funding on developing their provision of PE and sport, but have the freedom to choose how they do this. Our BJS key areas are as follows:

Key indicator 1: The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity.

Key indicator 2: The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.

Key indicator 3: Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.

Key indicator 4: Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.

Key indicator 5: Increased participation in competitive sport.

Ofsted play a significant role in ensuring that schools target this funding in areas which will lead to clear outcomes in raising standards and opportunities. 

The aim of the funding is to ensure that all children leave primary school “physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.” Ofsted. 

As a Primary school we receive this funding, which is documented below:
