How to use the PE and sport premium

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport you offer.

This means that you should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

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



Purpose of funding.
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
From September 2013, schools will be held to account over how they spend their additional, ring-fenced funding. Ofsted will strengthen the coverage of PE and sport within the 'Inspectors’ handbook' and supporting guidance so that both schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the school’s overall provision.

The Grange

Allocations for the academic year are calculated using the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6.

•Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 plus £10 per eligible pupil; and

•Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1000 per eligible pupil.
As a school we will receive roughly £18,000 to spend solely on improving our provision for PE and School sport. Below you will find our action plan for the PE and School Sport funding. This plan is being constantly updated and we are examining different opportunities to develop our PE and Sport provision.
