The Government has confirmed that the primary PE & Sport Premium will continue at £320 million for the 2022/23 academic year.
This funding is ring fenced and allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with a dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Funding is allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism. The formula references the number of primary-aged pupils (i.e. children between the ages of 5 and 11).
The impact on PE, school sport and physical activity is measured against the 5 indicators:
Our vision for Physical Education and Sport is that every child should have the opportunity to take part in physical activity on a regular basis and build on skills for life. We aim to teach our children the benefits of a healthy lifestyle, including healthy eating and positive emotional well-being. We hope that, through all the sporting opportunities and physical activity we offer, the children will develop a love and passion for all areas of Physical Education. We want our children to be resilient, empathetic, ambitious and independent; skills which they will learn through PE and daily physical activity.
