The Use and Impact of Sports Premium at Hampton Primary School
The Government invested £320 million per annum in order to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding is provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils received a lump sum of £16,000 plus a premium of £10 per pupil. Hampton Primary School's Sports Premium allocation was £21,760 in 2020-21.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents and carers are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Hampton Primary School.
There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across with this additional funding:
- 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
- the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
- increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
- broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
- increased participation in competitive sport
Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, but they are free to choose the best of way using of the money.
