PE and Sport Premium

The Primary PE and Sport Premium was introduced in March 2013 to improve the provision of Physical Education and School Sport in Primary Schools across England.

The £150 million per year funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport (DfE, DH, DCMS). The funding is allocated directly to primary schools and is ring fenced. This means it may only be spent on improving the provision of PE and Sport in schools. In February 2014 the government committed to continue the funding until 2020. The government provides additional funding to support the provision of high quality PE and Sport in primary schools.
It is our responsibility to ensure that developoments funded by the PE and Sport Grant are sustainable into the future. We intend to do this by equipping staff to the highest level to deliver a quality PE and Sport curriculum through continuing professional development and internal monitoring by an enthusiastic curriculum leader. In addition we will establish a programme of inter-schools participation in sport which becomes a priority for the future.
Our school takes children, in Years 3 and 4, who are unable to swim 25 metres for swimming lessons at Gosforth Pool, during the summer term as part of their PE provision. This ensures children are well prepared for the end of Key Stage 2 (Year 6) expectation that they will be able to swim 25m.
