School PE Funding Impact and Evidence


 Click the links below to view our P.E. and Sport Action Plans:


In 2013 the Government announced funding of £450m for Primary school PE. The funding would be split over the 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16 academic years. Each school receives a set amount depending on the number of pupils on roll. Our school will receive £8000 a year plus £5 per pupil.

“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 way of using the money” - Ofsted.


Primary PE and Sport Premium funding Objectives:

  • To improve the quality of existing PE teaching through continuing professional development 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

Our Vision for PE at Our Lady of Pity:

  • To raise awareness and participation in all pupils (particularly in girls)
  • More competitions within school and with other local schools


From September 2013, schools will be held to account over how they spend their additional funding. Ofsted will strengthen the coverage of PE and sport within the ‘Inspectors’ handbook’ and supporting guidance so that both schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the school’s overall provision.


Schools will also be required to include details of their provision of PE and sport on their website, alongside details of their broader curriculum, so that parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within and beyond the school day.
