Primary

Primary Schools are now in the 3rd year of ring fenced sport premium funding.

Below is the vision for use of this money, produced by the Ministerial Group that oversees the funding including senior representatives from DfE, DCMS, Department of Health, Youth Sport Trust, Sport England and Ofsted.

“A measurable and sustained improvement in school PE and sport, underpinned by high-quality teaching that increases participation levels in physical activity, and leads to healthier pupils who are more engaged across the whole curriculum.  This will be our legacy to the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games”.

The impact of this funding has been considered in terms of:

  • achievement in weekly PE lessons
  • increased participation in competitive school sport
  • personal health and well-being; and
  • improved attitudes and behaviour towards learning

Common weaknesses in primary PE have been found to include:

  • teachers’ lack of detailed subject knowledge
  • superficial lesson planning and limited use of assessment
  • not enough opportunities for pupils to participate and compete in school sport
  • insufficient focus on promoting pupils’ physical fitness
  • no strategy to improve the health and well-being of all pupils
  • not all pupils could swim 25 metres unaided by the end of Key Stage 2
