What is the Primary Sport Premium?
The primary school sport premium is £150 million per annum of government funding jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. Investment does directly to individual primary school Head Teachers and is designed to support improvement in the quality and depth of PE and school sport.
High quality provision focuses on a range of outcomes designed to deliver a balanced and holistic PE and school sport offer including; physical literacy and learn to swim, healthy lifestyles, a broad range of experiences including non-traditional/cultural activities and links to community sports clubs.
How can Healthy Schools help schools meet the Sport Premium outcomes?
Schools are expected to track pupils to show what improvements have been made and evidence the impact of the sport premium.
Through the Cornwall Healthy Schools Award process schools are able to clearly evidence their expenditure of the Pupil Sport Premium. Furthermore, by completing the award, schools have the opportunity to explain their reasons for spending money in their chosen ways, whilst also demonstrating the impact on the well being of pupils
