Evidencing the Impact of the Primary PE and Sport Premium - October 2017 ‘Revised reporting template’

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

evidence impactThe vision for the ‘Primary PE and Sport Premium’, is that ALL pupils leaving primary school are physically literate and provided with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

Maintained schools, including those that convert to academies, MUST publish, on their website by early April 2018, information about their use of the Primary PE and Sport Premium. The revised template is the recommended tool for reporting on this information.

Schools should publish the amount of premium received; a full breakdown of how it has been spent (or will be spent); what impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment and how the improvements will be sustainable in the future. Schools should also consider how their use of the premium is giving pupils the opportunity to develop a healthy, active lifestyle. The premium must be spent by schools on making additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of all pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

The ‘new’ swimming condition is also included on the revised reporting template   For full details, advice and links to the revised template follow - http://bit.ly/2h7KBwu
