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 all their children. This is called PE and Sports Premium funding.

The Sports premium funding 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.

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

Key indicator 3: Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport

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

Key indicator 5: Increased participation in competitive sport

2021-22 grant value is £19690.

We are a school that values sport and PE because:

Children enjoy it because it’s fun to do.

It contributes to their emotional well-being
It helps them to develop healthy lifestyles.
If taught well, it develops their social skills, their humanity and empathy and it teaches them how to persevere and be resilient.
