PE and Sport Premium
Funding for the PE and Sport Premium
Schools receive PE and Sport Premium funding from the Department for Education based on the number of pupils within years 1-6. Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sports but have the freedom to choose how best to do this as long as it helps achieve the following aims:
- to develop or add to the PE physical activity and sport that the school provides;
- to build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made will benefit pupils in future years.
Schools use the PE premium to make improvements against the following 5 key indicators.
- to increase children's participation in sport;
- to raise the profile of PE and sport across the school;
- to increase the confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff teaching PE;
- to provide a broader experience of sports to pupils;
- to improve the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity.
This academic year (2023-2024) Leiston Primary will receive £18,810 in addition to £0 which we carried forward from the previous year. In total, our PE and Sports Premium Grant is £18,810.
As a school we value the importance of keeping our children active and recognise the contribution it has to both health and well-being. Therefore, at Leiston Primary School we ensure our children are receiving effective teaching of a high quality PE curriculum. PE also clearly contributes to our children building character skills such as: teamwork, fair play and respect for themselves and others. There is an abundance of evidence that show the positive effects sport and exercise have on children’s physical health, growth and development.
Previous PE Grant Reports
Working alongside our PE provider - Xtratime sports development and coaching - we are able to ensure that staff are continually supported by professional PE coaches in delivering our high quality curriculum. Our assessment system enables us to track our children's progress and to nurture young sports people. Monitoring of PE lessons and information gained by pupil and staff feedback allow the PE lead and the Senior leadership team to highlight areas for growth and development across the curriculum.
