Action Plan

Background - 2017-2018

In October 2017, the Government announced that they had doubled the Primary School PE and Sport Premium from £160 million per year to £320 million per year to help schools support healthier, more active lifestyles. The funding would enable primary schools to make further improvements to the quality and breadth of PE and sport they offer.

In the following video clip, Ali Oliver (CEO at Youth Sport Trust) explains the recent changes to the Primary PE and School Sport Premium and how to maximise its effectiveness on schools.                                                                                                                                            


How the PE and sport premium can be used

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

This means that they should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that their school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within their 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
