PE & School Sports Funding
Since September 2013, the government have provided additional funding to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and school sport in primary schools.
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE, school sport and physical activity (PESSPA) they offer their children. Schools have freedom with how they spend the money but each year must evidence the impact of the spend and should expect to see sustainable impact and improvements across at least one of these 5 key indicators:
- Key indicator 1: The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that primary school pupils undertake at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day in school
- Key indicator 2: The profile of PESSPA 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
