PE/ Sport PremiumBack
Schools receive sports funding in order to improve the provision of PE and sport.
Possible uses for the funding include:
- providing targeted activities or support to involve and encourage the least active children
- encouraging active play during break times and lunchtimes
- establishing, extending or funding attendance of school sport clubs and activities and holiday clubs, or broadening the variety offered
- raising attainment in primary school swimming to meet requirements of the national curriculum before the end of key stage 2. We should aim that every child should leave primary school able to swim
- embedding physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school, active break times and active lessons and teaching
- providing staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively to all pupils, and embed physical activity across your school
- hiring qualified sports coaches to work alongside teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities
- introducing new sports and physical activities (such as dance, yoga or fitness sessions) to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities
- partnering with other schools to run sport activities and clubs
- providing more (or broadening the variety of) extra-curricular activities after school in the 3 to 6pm window, delivered by the school or other local sport organisations
