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 available to all pupils. More information can be found by clicking here.
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 playtime and the Daily Mile.
Leaders at Mossgate use the PE & Sport Premium to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE, School Sport and Physical Activity (PESSPA) 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
When planning how we will spend the PE & Sport Premium, we reference 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: Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
Key indicator 2: The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – Chief Medical Officers guidelines recommend that primary school pupils undertake at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day in school.
Key indicator 3: The profile of PESSPA being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
Key indicator 4: Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
Key indicator 5: Increased participation in competitive sport.
