Evidencing the Impact of the Primary PE and Sport Premium October 2018
This means that you should use the premium to:
- Develop or add to the PE, physical activity 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
The vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium is that ALL pupils leaving primary school are physically literate with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
Maintained schools, including those that convert to academies, MUST publish, on their website by 31st July 2019, information about their use of the Primary PE and Sport Premium.
- Schools must publish the amount of premium received
- A full breakdown of how it has been spent (or will be spent)
- The impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE, physical activity, and sport participation and attainment
- How the improvements will be sustainable in the future
Schools are also required to publish the percentage of pupils within your year 6 cohort in the 2018 to 2019 academic year who met the national curriculum requirement to:
- Swim competently, confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres
- Use a range of strokes effectively
- Perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations
Attainment data for year 6 pupils should be provided from their most recent swimming lessons. This may be data from years 3, 4, 5 or 6, depending on the swimming programme at your school.
Schools should also consider how their use of the premium is giving pupils the opportunity to develop a healthy, active lifestyle.
The premium must be spent by schools on making additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of all pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
The Secretary of State does not consider the following expenditure as falling within the scope of additional or sustainable improvement:
- Employing coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements – these should come out of schools’ core staffing budgets
- Teaching the minimum requirements of the national curriculum PE programmes of study – including those specified for swimming
The Primary PE and Sport Premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
The Department for Education commissioned partners in the physical education and school sport sector to develop a template to create a national template which has been updated to include swimming data and any revised guidelines. Head teachers, Governors and Subject Leaders will be able to use this simple reporting mechanism to ensure they are compliant.
Schools are required to publish details of how they spend this funding as well as on the impact it has on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment. We recommend regularly updating the table and publishing it on your website as evidence of your ongoing review into how you are using the money to secure maximum, sustainable impact.
