PE and Sport Premium
"All pupils leave primary school 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."
-DfE Vision Statement for Primary PE Sports Premium
What is the Sports Premium?
The PE and sports premium for primary schools was introduced in March 2013 to improve the provision of PE and sport in primary schools across England. The school sport and activity action plan is a cross-government plan created to provide children with a greater chance to access 60 minutes of sport and physical activity every day.
This plan recommended that at least 30 of those minutes take place within school time. The PE and sport premium can help schools to achieve this aim, as it provides schools with £350 million of government funding to improve the PE and physical activity opportunities for children.
Sports Premium at St Bartholomew's
At St Bartholomew's Primary School we believe that PE, sports and healthy active lifestyles are crucial to children’s all-round development. The premium will not only be used to raise the children’s enjoyment of physical activity but will also be used to promote a healthy lifestyle whilst building the children’s confidence, teamwork, social skills and a positive mindset.
The Sports Premium funding is used in a variety of ways to continue to make improvements to the quality of of PE, physical activity and sports offered to all children. We are putting a big emphasis on making these changes sustainable so that our use of the funding will have a long-lasting impact.
A full breakdown of how we used the Sports Premium in the 2022-2023 school year can be found in the documents below. The breakdown of this year's allocation will be published later in the year.
