PE & Sports Premium

What is PE and Sports Premium?

This funding is allocated to primary schools to increase PE and sporting opportunities for children. The funding is jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, with the view to encourage active and healthy lifestyles. However, each school has the freedom to choose how they do this.

How is Sports Premium used to support pupils at Alma Park?

At Alma Park, we recognise the immense value that PE brings to our pupils’ lives, as it promotes not only their physical health but also their mental and emotional wellbeing. With an engaging, dynamic PE curriculum, complemented by exciting extracurricular opportunities, we encourage all pupils to participate in sports and aspire for success.

Our Action Plan has been specifically developed to ensure the effective use of the Sports Premium. This Action Plan sits alongside the PE subject Action Plan and within the overall School Improvement Plan. It sets out our vision to:

  • Improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision
  • Increase participation
  • Ensure all pupils develop healthy lifestyles
  • Ensure all pupils achieve the performance standards they are capable of.

The Department of Education’s vision for the Primary PE and School Sport Premium is that:

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

In order to ensure continued improvement each year and sustainability, evidence of impact is gathered using a variety of methods and plans are reflected upon and evaluated in order to plan for the forthcoming year.
