Evaluation of Birdlip Primary School Physical Education and Sport Premium Funding 2015-2016

DfE Vision Statement

ALL pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

5 Key Indicators

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles.
  • The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
  • Increased participation in competitive sport.

Funding for Primary School PE and Sports

The Government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.  It has now been confirmed that the funding will continue for the academic year 2016-2017.

The fundamental aim of this grant aid is to further improve the provision and quality of Physical Education (PE) and Sport provided by all primary schools nationally. The funding is provided jointly by the Departments of Education, Health; Culture Media & Sport and is to be ring fenced thus ensuring that schools spend their grant only upon PE & Sport as well as initiatives that address developing healthy lifestyles in either curricular or extra-curricular settings.

Purpose of funding

It is a mandatory requirement, as authorised by Department of Education (DfE), that all state schools dedicate this funding upon developing their provision of PE and sport, although how they do decide to address this task remains their decision. Birdlip Primary School has committed itself to following the statutory guidance as provided by DfE and Ofsted. Evidence of our school’s pledge to enhancing staff professional development can be determined through the PE CPD training programme which benefits all members of the teaching staff.


From September 2013, responsibility for the effective spend and impact of the grant aid rests with every state primary sector teaching establishment. Ofsted has publicised their intention to increase the coverage of inspection related to PE and sport.

Ofsted has also confirmed that it will carry out a percentage of subject visit inspections per year as a means of analysing the success of the national strategy.

The Department of Education routinely publishes statutory compliance targets for all schools. Such an example of this practice includes the requirement that schools must publish online evidence of how they have spent their Primary PE and Sports Premium funding as well as identifying the positive impact of the funding. This Government order is intended to enable the wider school community to monitor progress and compare achievements and results with other local schools.
