Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. It is based on the pupils on roll during the January census. Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1,000 per pupil. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil. The funding is received in two separate payments’ during the year.
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:
- 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
- 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

By purchasing the additional equipment, we expect to see a rise in pupil participation before with lessons and interschool completions. This will impact positively on pupil’s progress. The success of the funding will be analyzed at the end of the summer term 2017.
