PE & Sports Funding

What is the PE & 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. More information can be found by clicking here.


This additional government funding should be used to ensure that all children:  

  • take part in moderate to vigorous intensity physical activity for at least 60 minutes every day - The UK Chief Medical Officers
  • participate in at least 30 minutes of daily activity in schools - Government's Childhood Obesity Plan
  • have equal access to high-quality PE provision
  • have opportunities to participate in a wide range of sports and physcial activities 


How do we use the PE & Sport Premium?

At Mossgate Primary School, we believe we have a central role to play in supporting all children to live healthy, active livestyles and this is demonstrated through our whole-school 'Health & Well-being' theme which takes place annually during the first half of the Autumn term. We believe that we lay the foundations to ensure children develop positive attitudes towards healthy lifestyles and enjoyable participation in regular, physical activity in later life.

We are committed to our children receiving two hours of high-quality PE taught by confident and knowledgeable teachers and providing opportunities to experience and participate in a wide range of sports and physical activities throughout the year. Alongside this, children have access to at least 55 minutes of physical activity daily during the school day through active playtimes and the Daily Mile.


Leaders at Mossgate use the PE & Sport Premium to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PESSPA by:

  • funding high-quality PE and sport for at least 2 hours a week, complemented by a wide range of extracurricular sport and competitive opportunities 
  • providing and improving equal access to sport for boy and girls 
  • increasing participation in PESSPA, so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of
  • build capacity and capability to make sure that improvements made to PESSPA now are sustainable and will benefit pupils joining Mossgate in the future 


When planning how we will spend the PE & Sport Premium, we prioritise the five key indicators recommended by the DfE, Association for Physical Education and the Youth Sports Trust in our PE & Sport Premium Plan. 

Key indicator 1: Increasing confidence, knowledge and skills in teaching PE and sport.

Key indicator 2: Increasing engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity and sport.

Key indicator 3: Raising the profile of PE and sport across across the school, to support whole school improvement.

Key indicator 4: Offer a broader and more equal experience of a range of sports and physial activities to all pupils.

Key indicator 5: Increase participation in competitive sport.
