PE and Sport Premium
PE and sports premium is allocated to schools by the government, based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. The object of the funding is for schools to be able to ‘make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sports that they offer’.
How we use the PE and Sport Premium funding
Given the aim of the funding, we ensure that it is used to deliver improvements, over and above the quality PE and sports teaching that we already provide at Selwyn. A detailed report of how we used the funding in 2022/23 to enhance our provision is available here. An overview of how we plan to use it in the year 2023/24 is available here.
Areas where we use our funding includes:
- hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
- provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
- introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
- support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs and holiday clubs
- run sport competitions
- increase pupils’ participation in the School Games (see below)
- run sports activities with other schools
