Sport Premium 2016-17

The School Sport Premium is a Government package of funding for Primary School PE and school sport provided by the Departments of Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. Funding is allocated through a lump sum and a small per pupil top up and can only be spent on sport and PE provision in school.

The purpose of the funding is to improve provision of PE and sport but schools have the freedom to choose how to do this. We must also ensure that high quality PE can be sustained after the funding stops. Schools will be held to account for how the funding is spent as the money can only be used for PE and School Sport.

Ofsted will ask inspectors to consider, “How well the school uses it’s Sport Premium to improve the quality and breadth of its PE and sporting provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.”

The vision for Primary PE and Sports Premium is set out as follows:

‘All pupils leaving primary school should be physically literate, and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and a lifelong participation in physical activity and sport’.

At Moorside, our ambition is to increase pupils’ participation in sport and physical exercise, and to improve the performance of our pupils in sporting activities. We believe that immersing pupils in sport and encouraging their physical activity will not only develop their confidence, team-building skills and self-discipline, it will establish a lifelong interest in and awareness of a healthy lifestyle.
