PE and Sport Premium

What is the Primary School PE and Sports Grant?

In April 2013 the government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE and Sports) to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. The funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – has been allocated to primary school headteachers. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

Purpose of funding

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:

  • Hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside teachers when teaching PE
  • Pay for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
  • Provide cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
  • Run sport competitions, or increasing participation in Panathlon competitions
  • Spend money on sports equipment

Dysart PE and Sports Grant

Funding for schools is calculated by reference to the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11), as recorded in the annual schools census in January 2013.

The funding for each academic year is included in the documents below.

At Dysart the PE and Sports funding will be used to:

  • Secure and enrich the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision
  • Increase participation in PE and Sports so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach performance levels of which they are capable

Year 6 Swimming Competence

It is a requirement for schools to publish the competence of their Year 6 pupils in swimming each year. Due to the nature of the SEND experienced by the cohort, this is not appropriate to pupils at Dysart school.

You are rightly proud of your work around pupil wellbeing, and ensuring pupils are ready for learning.  This has enabled you to establish a calm and purposeful learning environment for pupils with considerable needs.
