P.E and Sports Premium Funding

At Caldew Lea Primary School, we understand that through Sport and PE, pupils develop invaluable qualities such as discipline, teamwork, communication, endurance and ambition.  These qualities enhance children’s learning both in and out of the classroom.

To develop the legacy of the London 2012 Olympics, the government has provided funding to all primary schools to improve sporting opportunities, participation and the quality of physical education offered to children. 

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. This funding must be used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport we offer.

We use the premium to:

  • Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that we already offer;
  • Build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.

There are 5 key indicators that we 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.

As part of the funding criteria we are required to publish details of how we plan to spend the monies and a review of the impact on pupil outcomes.
