Menston Primary School

Making our world a better place

PE & Sports Premium

The government allocates funding to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for children. This is called PE and Sports Premium Grant.

The Sports Premium Grant at Menston Primary School is used to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of pupils so that they develop healthy lifestyles and have opportunities to experience a wide variety of different sports and fitness activities.

Playing sport helps to keep children healthy and is good for communities. Playing sport at school or in a local club is also the first step to competition at the highest level, which helps improve our reputation as a sporting nation, and contributes to economic growth.

The government identifies five key indicators that schools should work to see improvement across. These are:

Key indicator 1: Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport

Key indicator 2: The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – Chief Medical Officers guidelines recommend that primary school pupils undertake at least 30 minutes of physical activity a day in school

Key indicator 3: The profile of PESSPA being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement

Key indicator 4: Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils

Key indicator 5: Increased participation in competitive sport

2023 – 24 grant value for our school is £19, 490
