Is the school encouraging the development of healthy, active lifestyles by using the PE and sport premium for primary schools to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport?

6.1.4 Physical Education and Sport

17. A high-quality physical education curriculum inspires all pupils to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. It should provide opportunities for pupils to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities build character and help to embed values such as fairness and respect.

18. All boards should be aware of the PE and sport premium for primary schools. The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2015 to 2016 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles. Guidance on how much PE and sport premium funding primary schools receive and advice on how to spend it has been published.

12.4 The school budget

35. The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. The Ofsted inspection criteria specifically states that, in making their judgement on the effectiveness of leadership and management in schools, inspectors will consider ‘how effectively leaders use the primary PE and sport premium and measure its impact on outcomes for pupils, and how effectively governors hold them to account for this’. Schools are required to publish on their websites the amount of PE and sport premium received; a full breakdown of how it has been spent (or will be spent); what impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment and how the improvements will be sustainable in the future. Schools should also consider how their use of the premium is giving pupils the opportunity to develop a healthy, active lifestyle.
