PE & Sport Premium Grant Outcomes
All primary schools in England are provided with an amount of money which must be spent on Sport in school. Whilst the money itself is ‘ring fenced’; the specifics of what sporting activities are funded is not.
I am committed to ensuring that not only is this funding used to affect all children in our school, but that it is also used in a sustainable fashion which will secure high quality sport after the funding ceases. The impact of the sport premium expenditure will be measured and reported to governors annually along with our pupil premium expenditure report.
The provision of high quality sporting experiences can be secured through 2 main pathways:
Opportunities for children directly
Opportunities for children indirectly through development and training of staff
Aligning our school’s use of the Sport Premium to these pathways will therefore be non- negotiable. Quite simply if it does not have an impact on children (directly or indirectly) then the expenditure will not be deemed justified.
