Bousfield Primary School

PE & Sports Premium

The PE and School Sport Premium is part of a joint strategy supported and funded by the Department for Education (DfE), Department for Health (DfH) and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS).  The funding has been allocated to Primary Schools to “improve the quality and breadth of Physical Education and Sport Provision, including increasing participation so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.” 

From the DfE:

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport they provide. This includes any carried forward funding.

This means that you must use the PE and sport premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport that your school provides
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now are sustainable and will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

You should use the PE and sport premium to secure improvements in the following 5 key indicators.

Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity, for example by:

  • providing targeted activities or support to involve and encourage the least active children
  • encouraging active play during break times and lunchtimes
  • establishing, extending or funding attendance of school sports clubs and activities and holiday clubs, or broadening the variety offered
  • adopting an active mile initiative
  • raising attainment in primary school swimming to meet requirements of the national curriculum before the end of key stage 2 - every child should leave primary school able to swim

Academic year 2021 - 2022

Bousfield was allocated £19,460 - £16,000 base and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.

At Bousfield, we are committed to providing high-quality PE and sport to all children. We also recognise the significant impact PE and sport can have on a child’s health, self-esteem and consequently on their passion to learn.

Aside from activities funded through this grant, the school has expanded sports provision significantly during the past few years.
