Sports Premium

‘Sports premium funding has been used successfully to develop the pupils’ sports leadership programme, to improve the quality of the teaching of physical education for staff who are not specialist teachers, to develop extra-curricular activities and to provide specialist sports equipment.’

(Ofsted, February 2019)

How schools can use the PE and Sport Premium

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

This means that schools should use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

For example, schools can use your funding to:

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • run sport competitions
  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools

Ravenshall School PE and Sports Premium Strategy 2023 – 2024

The main intent of our school’s PE and Sports Premium spending strategy for 2023-2024 was to:

  • develop the school’s PE offer by introducing cycling to the curriculum
  • improve the overall provision of PE in the primary department through purchase of specialist equipment, training for staff and assistance from qualified sports coaches
  • encourage more pupils to take part in sporting activities across the school
