PE and Sport Premium

The Funding

The government is committed to providing additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of Physical Education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the department of education, health, and culture media and sport - is ring fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools; however, schools will have the freedom to choose how they do this.


Furze Platt Infant school will receive £16,000 plus a premium of £10 per eligible pupil (children aged 5 - 11 years on the January census each year) for each academic year to improve our provision of PE across the whole school. In 2020/21 this is £17,790. As a result of this funding, PE is a priority and the school has been proactive in seeking out ways to improve the opportunities for children at our school.


The PE and Sports Premium funding must be used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and Sport provision currently provided.


The DfE have created 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  1. The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  2. The profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport
