What is the Primary PE and Sport Premium?

The government is providing additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.


Since September 2013, schools are 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 offered.

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.

Rushbrook’s aims:

  • To ensure that we maintain 100% of teaching in Physical Education being graded as good or outstanding
  • To teach high quality PE sessions that inspire/engage all children to exceed personal potential. 
  • Children to be working in line with national expectations, using the Bronze, Silver and Gold assessment criteria created
  • To enter sporting competitions
  • To create a number of educational/sporting opportunities for young people and parents/ carers within the community
