Primary PE and Sport Premium


The Primary PE and Sport Premium is government funding provided to schools to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. The government have committed to this funding until 2020. The Department for Education’s vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium is for:

“All pupils leaving primary school (to be) physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.”

At Gorseland Primary School we share this vision and strive to use the funding to create a long lasting sporting legacy that will continue long after the Primary PE and Sport Premium. With this in mind, we aim to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of our PE and sport provision.

What impact will the premium have on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment?

The impact of how we spend our funding is evaluated termly against the following five key indicators:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  2. The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and Sport
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport
  6. Encouraging healthy food choices

Completed termly, the tables below evaluate the strategies used by the school against the 6 key indicators and indicates the relative cost and impact of each.
