What is the PE and Sports Premium Funding?

The government is providing substantial extra funding for the academic years 2013-2020 to support schools to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and achieve their potential. Schools decide how this funding is spent, as they are best placed to assess what provision should be made for their school. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Springhead.

Our Vision: All pupils leaving 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.

Our Objectives:

To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools.

We would expect indicators of such improvement to include:

•          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

It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:

Key Indicator 1: the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school

Key Indicator 2: the profile of PE and sport is 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
