Sport Premium

What is the sport premium?

All children and young people should live healthy, active lives. The UK Chief Medical Officers recommend that all children and young people should take part in physical activity for at least 60 minutes every day. Children with special educational needs and disabilities should take part in 20 minutes of daily activity.

Schools have a key role to play in achieving this aim. All children should have equal access to high-quality PE provision and opportunities to experience and participate in a wide range of sports and physical activities. Academic achievement can improve in school because of the benefits children can gain.

Schools should prioritise sport premium spending to improve in the following 5 key areas:

  • increasing all staff’s confidence, knowledge and skills in teaching PE and sport
  • increasing engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity and sport
  • raising the profile of PE and sport across the school, to support whole school improvement
  • offer a broader and more equal experience of a range of sports and physical activities to all pupils
  • increase participation in competitive sport

Below you will find our most recent sport premium report which outlines how we have used this year's sport premium allocation.
