PE and Sports Funding
Statutory Requirement – Publishing your PE and Sport Premium Funding IS a statutory requirement on your school website.
You must publish details of how you spend your PE and sport premium funding. This must include:
- the amount of the premium received
- a full breakdown of how it has been spent (or will be spent)
- the impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment
- how the improvements will be sustainable in the future
For the 2017 to 2018 academic year, there is a new condition requiring schools to publish:
- how many pupils within their year 6 cohort are meeting the national curriculum requirement to swim competently , confidently and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres, use a range of different strokes effectively and perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
This condition has been added in response to recommendations from the Swim Group, who reviewed curriculum swimming and water safety in primary schools. You can get advice and resources to help deliver swimming lessons successfully in primary schools.
To help you plan, monitor and report on the impact of your spending, it is recommended that you download a template to record your activity. The Department has commissioned partners in the physical education and school sport sector to develop a template, which is available from the Association for Physical Education and the Youth Sport Trust
Ofsted assesses how primary schools use the primary PE and sport premium. They measure its impact on pupil outcomes, and how effectively governors hold school leaders to account for this.
You can find details of what inspectors look for in the ‘effectiveness of leadership and management’ section of the ‘Ofsted schools inspection handbook 2015’.
