Sports Funding


The funding has been provided to ensure the impact against the following objective:

To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools

It is important to emphasise that the focus of spending must lead to long lasting impact against the vision (above) that will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding.

It is expected that Beechwood Junior School will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  • 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 experiences of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • Increased participation in competitive sport

Under the Ofsted Schools Inspection Framework 2015, inspectors will assess how effectively leaders use the Primary PE and Sport Premium and measure its impact on outcomes for pupils, and how effectively governors hold them to account for this.  Schools are required to publish details of how they spend this funding and the effect it has had on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment.

AfPE have suggested the following when using the premium:

  • Develop or add to the PE and Sport activities that your school already offers
  • Hire qualified 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 the sport
  • Support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs or Change4Life clubs
  • Run sport competitions
  • Increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • Run sports activities with other schools

The PE and Sport Premium must not be used to:

  • Employ coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning, preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements – must be costed to core staffing budgets
  • Teach the minimum requirements of the national curriculum – including those specified for swimming
