The primary aim is to raise the profile and improve the provision of PE and sport in school and to ensure healthy and active lifestyles. The Government are supporting and encouraging schools to provide professional development opportunities for their staff, provide cover/release time for teachers for professional development in PE/Sport, to hire specialist PE teachers/qualified sports coaches to work alongside teachers teaching PE, provide places for pupils on after-school sport clubs and holiday clubs, to run sporting competitions or increasing participation in school games, to increase the amount of swimming sessions in KS2, and to buy in quality assured professional development for schools.
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
This year we will be participating in a range of sporting activities in order to promote healthy lifestyles and physical wellbeing in all pupils, encourage a lifelong love of sports and to challenge and stimulate learning for both pupils and staff within our academy. This will be achieved through the sport premium funding and any additional funding made available by the school for sport, health and fitness.
