PE & Sports Funding

What is the PE and sport premium?

The government’s PE & Sport Premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE, School Sport and Physical Activity (PESSPA) available to all pupils.


How do we use the PE and sport premium?

At Mossgate Primary School, we use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PESSPA we offer by:

  • developing and adding to PESSPA activities available to all pupils  
  • building capacity and capability within school to ensure improvements made now will benefit pupils joining Mossgate in future years
  • increasing the participation in PESSPA, so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of

Our ultimate aim is to improve the quality and breadth of PESSPA provision available to all pupils at Mossgate.


When planning how we will spend the PE and sport premium, we reference the five key indicators recommended by the DfE, Association for Physical Education and the Youth Sports Trust.

Key indicator 1: The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity. (The school sport and activity action plan sets out the government’s commitment to ensuring that children and young people have access to at least 60 minutes of sport and physical activity per day. It recommends 30 minutes of this is delivered during the school day (in line with the Chief Medical Officers guidelines which recommend an average of at least 60 minutes per day across the week).

Key indicator 2: The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.

Key indicator 3: Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.

Key indicator 4: Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.

Key indicator 5: Increased participation in competitive sport.
