Primary PE and Sport Premium Reporting Deadline

Following the announcement from the Department for Education end of June this year that the funding will continue for the 2022/23 academic year with the average one form entry primary school receiving roughly £18,000 it is more important than ever we get the accountability and reporting correct in Cornwall to evidence the impact and learning of this investment across our Primary Schools.

All primary schools MUST publish, on their website, information about the use, impact and sustainability of this investment before the 31st July 2022. This includes all underspend from previous years.

Schools must publish the amount of Primary PE and sport premium received, a full breakdown of how it has been spent, what impact the school has seen on pupils’ Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity, participation and attainment and how the investment will be sustainable.

To the support this we recommend schools use the AfPE and YST ‘Evidencing the Impact of the Primary PE and Sport Premium Template July 2021’ template or if you wish to continue to use the T2M template please use the updated version.

All young people should have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age can build a lifetime habit of participation and is central to meeting the government’s ambitions for a world-class education system.

The PE and Sport Premium  can help primary schools to achieve this aim by providing eligible schools with £16,000 per year and an additional payment of £10 per pupil. This government funding should make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered.

Ofsted’s new Inspection Framework, which came into effect from September 2019, gives greater recognition to schools’ work to support the personal development of pupils, such as the opportunities they have to learn about eating healthily and maintaining an active lifestyle. Inspectors will expect to see schools delivering a broad, ambitious education, including opportunities to be active during the school day and through extra-curricular activities. Schools should consider how they use their PE and Sport Premium to support this.

Schools should use the premium to secure improvements in the following 5 key indicators:

  1. Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
  2. 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
The Department for Education has published updated guidance and grant conditions for schools in relation to the Primary PE and Sport Premium for the academic year, 2021-22.
