PE and Sport Premium

What is the PE and Sport Premium?

The primary schools PE and Sport premium was introduced in March 2013 to improve the provision of physical education and school sport in primary schools across England. The £150 million per year funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health, and Culture, Media and Sport (DfE, DH, DCMS). The funding is allocated directly to primary schools and is ring-fenced. This means it may only be spent on improving the provision of Physical Education (PE) and sport in schools. 

PE and Sports Premium is additional funding provided to schools to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport. It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:

1. 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.

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.

How do we intend to use the Sports Premium?

At Rawcliffe Bridge Primary School and Rawcliffe Primary School we believe keeping fit and healthy by enjoying sports activities is a vital part of children’s education. We promote the participation and enjoyment of sport for every child in school and work hard to provide high-quality physical education (PE) lessons and extra-curricular activities as well as supporting the child's overall social, physical, mental and emotional well-being.
