Every school in England was been given a large sum of money to spend on PE and health. This is part of the government’s plan to keep alive the legacy of the Olympic Games and to inspire a new generation.
The Impact of the PE and Sports Premium
The Subject Leaders evaluate the impact of the PE and Sports Premium funding as part of the normal subject monitoring arrangements. We have used our PE and Sport Premium to: improve the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision; including increasing participation in PE and sport, so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of. We have also engaged the least active pupils by targeting specific children to work in small groups with our Sports Coach and Sports Ambassadors.

After school club participation
Having analysed the uptake of after school sports clubs over the last few years it is clear that the sports premium has had a positive impact. The Subject Leaders have been able to identify children who had not previously participated and proactively offered places at clubs to them first. . The number of children eligible for the Pupil Premium Grant attending extra –curricular sports clubs has increased since last year.
The key messages learned were that over 92% children enjoy PE at Heathfield.
