Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer by:
- Developing or adding to the PE and sport activities they already offer.
- Building capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
“Achieving sustainable outcomes is key to any spending of the PE and sport premium.”
There are 5 key areas that schools should use this funding to improve:
- Increasing confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff 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.
Schools should not use their funding to:
- Fund capital expenditure e.g. multi-use games areas and Daily Mile tracks.
- Employ coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning, preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements.
- Teach the minimum requirements of the national curriculum.
- Buy services that will be delivered or used in following academic years.
- Buy staff PE kit.
