Sport Premium Grant Information
What is the Sport Premium Grant?
Funding is based on the number of pupils
DfE guidance on the conditions of the PE and sport grant for the academic year explains that allocations will be calculated using the number of pupils in years 1 to 6 and those aged five in reception.
How to use the PE and sport premium – further information on DfE Website
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
This means that you should use the premium to:
- develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
- make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
For example, you can use your funding to:
- Mhire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
- provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
- introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
- support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
- run sport competitions
- increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
- run sports activities with other schools
How is the Sport Premium used in Sugar Hill?
Sugar Hill Primary School Sports Premium
Our Sports Premium allowance for the academic year 2019-2020 is £20,000 The premium will be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles. The Department for Education’s vision for the Primary PE and Sports Premium is that ALL pupils leaving primary school should be physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
We endeavour to see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:
- 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 being 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 sport and activities offered to all pupils
- Increased participation in competitive sport.
