PE and Sport Premium at Park Aspire – April 22-March 23

Funding for the PE and sport premium
Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. In cases where schools don’t follow year groups (for example, in some special schools), pupils aged 5 to 10 attract the funding.

In most cases, we determine how many pupils in your school attract the funding using data from the January 2021 school census.

Most schools with primary-age pupils receive the PE and sport premium, including: schools maintained by the local authority academies and free schools, special schools (for children with special educational needs or disabilities) non-maintained special schools (schools for children with special educational needs that the Secretary of State for Education has approved under section 342 of the Education Act 1996) city technology colleges (CTCs) pupil referral units (PRUs provide education for children who can’t go to a mainstream school) general hospitals.

How to use the PE and sport premium
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

This means that you should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

For example, you can use your funding to:

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • run sport competitions
  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools

You should not use your funding to:

  • employ coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements – these should come out of your core staffing budgets
  • teach the minimum requirements of the national curriculum – including those specified for swimming (or, in the case of academies and free schools, to teach your existing PE curriculum)

Allocated funding for 22-23
We have 4 main priorities for our sport premium in 22-23:

  • To develop the opportunities for experiential learning during the afternoon curriculum. This will include the ‘Get Active’ area from the Park Alternative Curriculum Scheme (KS2) and ‘Leisure’ from the ‘CALM’ curriculum within the Personal Development Programme (KS3).
  • To continue to deliver a varied PE curriculum, allowing professional coaches to engage all pupils and offer expertise and guidance to the school staff.
  • To purchase equipment that can enhance play and lunchtime sessions by introducing and developing activities. This will encourage pupils to become involved and active.
  • To purchase specific equipment that will allow us to deliver P.E and school sports and compete against other schools whilst increasing pupil participation.
