PE Premium Provision at Chestnut Park Primary School

What is the PE and Sports Grant?

The Education Funding Agency is providing additional funding to each school every academic year to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. Possible uses for the funding might include:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers to improve their teaching of PE
  • Supporting and engaging the least active children through improving planning and purchasing of resources to stretch and challenge
  • Paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs

As we grow as a school we are committed to working hard to achieve the best quality PE teaching and learning for our children.  We  will use  PE premium funding to improve provision for after school sport clubs; equipment to engage the children in different sports and supporting the teaching of high quality of PE lessons.

We will use the PE Premium money to contribute towards the development of our PE development action plan. The impact of the PE action plan and expenditure of the PE premium money will be evaluated at the end of the academic year.
