Dundonald Primary

PE and Sport Premium

What is PE and Sport Premium Funding?

Since 2013, the Government has provided funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. Schools must use this funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport on offer. OFSTED will assess how schools use the funding allocated.

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports an activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport

How much does the school receive?

In previous years all schools received a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. For Dundonald Primary School, this has been approximately £9,000 per year but is due to increase for the current academic year 2017/18.

Possible uses of the funding include:

  • Dedicated Sports Teaching and Learning Assistant 
  • 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
  • run sport competitions
  • run sports activities with other schools
