What is the Primary PE and Sports Premium?

The PE and Sport Premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

The four objectives of the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding are:

  • To improve the quality of existing PE teaching through continuing professional learning in PE, so that all primary pupils improve their health, skills and physical literacy, and have broader exposure to a range of sports;
  • To increase participation levels in competitive sport and healthy activity of pupils, and maintain these into adolescence;
  • To increase the quality of initial teacher training in PE and sport and to promote PE specialisation in primary level workforce;
  • Schools understand and value the benefits of high quality PE and sport, including its use as a tool for whole school improvement.

At Colindale Primary School, we recognise the contribution of PE and sport to the health and well-being of our pupils. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
