PE and Sport Premium Policy
The legacy of the London Olympics 2012 saw the introduction of the Primary School PE and Sport Funding which is focused on securing additional and sustainable improvements in the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of all pupils and to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
All young people should have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age can build a lifetime habit of
participation, and is central to meeting the government’s ambitions for a world-class
Physical activity has numerous benefits for children and young people’s physical health, as well as their mental wellbeing (increasing self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and lowering anxiety and depression), and children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers. Ensuring that pupils have access to
sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits for pupils and schools, improving
behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement.
The government is committed to ensuring that children and young people have access to at least 60 minutes of sport and physical activity per day, with a recommendation of 30 minutes of this delivered during the school day.
Eligibility and funding
Funding is paid to academies in two instalments usually in November and May and is based on the number of pupils in Years 1-6 in January census.
How to use the PE and Sport Funding Premium
School leaders know their schools best and so they have the flexibility to use the PE and Sport Funding Premium in the way that works best for their pupils as long as this
provision is additional and sustainable. As such, schools should use the funding to:
- Develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport that is currently provided
- Build capacity and capability with the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
Schools should use the PE and Sport Premium funding to secure improvements in the following 5 priority areas:
1 Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity, for example by:
- 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
- adopting an *active mile initiative
- raising attainment in primary school swimming to meet requirements of the
- national curriculum before the end of key stage 2. Every child should leave primary school able to swim
2 Profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement, for example by:
- encouraging pupils to take on leadership or volunteer roles that support sport and physical activity within the school (such as ‘sport leader’ or peer-mentoring schemes)
- embedding physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school, active break times and active lessons and teaching
3 Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport, for example by:
- 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
4 Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils, for example by:
- 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
5 Increased participation in competitive sport, for example by:
- increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games initiative
- organising, coordinating or entering more sport competitions or tournaments within the school or across the local area, including those run by sporting organisations.
Where schools choose to take part in an active mile, you should use your existing playgrounds, fields, halls and sports facilities to incorporate an active mile into the school day and develop a lifelong habit of daily physical activity.
Raising attainment in Primary School Swimming
Swimming is a national curriculum requirement and by the end of key stage, 2 pupils are expected to be able to swim confidently and know how to be safe in and around water.
The 3 national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety are to:
- swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25m
- perform a safe self-rescue in different water based situations
- use a range of strokes effectively
- The premium can be used to fund the professional development and training that is available to schools to train staff to support high quality swimming and water safety lessons for their pupils.
- The premium may also be used to provide additional top-up swimming lessons to pupils who have not been able to meet the 3 national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety – after the delivery of core swimming and water safety lessons.

Prompts for Headteachers (not for inclusion in policy)
Guidance seems to suggest you should have priorities in all areas – not sure about that one – personally I think you know where the focus should be in your own schools.
Focus area – one of the 5 areas / indicators for which funding can be used or additional swimming. I’d use the numbers in that column or put additional swimming
- Intent – be clear about what you want pupils, to know, be able to do and what they need to consolidate through practice
- Implementation – your actions – these will be linked to intent
- £ – how much is this going to cost
- Success criteria / impact – the so what question. Try and make as much measurable as you can
The main form asks for more information – I have tried to reduce it slightly but the evaluation seems much less onerous.
Given the amount of funding, I don’t think this form should be overly demanding in terms of time taken to complete.
Focus on additional and sustainable – the latter being after the funding has been removed
Be realistic – don’t set yourself up to fail.
Good use is purchase of consultant to work alongside staff to develop them
Remember to keep a record of swimming attainment, as this is not reported until pupils reach end of Y6 and they may well have been swimming in other year groups!
You can’t use the funding for:
- Capital expenditure
- Teaching the minimum requirements of your existing PE curriculum
- Employing coaches or additional teachers to release teachers for PPA
