Evidencing impact of the Primary PE and Sport Premium

The increase in the funding for PE has been widely reported.  However, do you know how you should be evidencing the impact of Primary PE and Sports Premium? More money ‘great’ I hear you say!  But you can be sure that this comes with added responsibility.  Keeping up with the most recent changes and what you are required to do as a school is not easy.

Just last week we had a call from a school worried about how they should be spending their money to get best impact and fulfil their obligations to pupils.  There are a range of national partners working together aiming to support schools with all aspects of the PE and sport premium funding, such as sports coach UK’s guidance on the employment and deployment of sports coaches.

Evidencing impact of the PE and School Sport Premium

The Association for Physical Education (AfPE) and The Youth Sport Trust were commissioned by the Department for Education to draw up a template which covers the 5 key indicators schools should use to demonstrate improvement.

This is a great tool as not only does it let you plan and evidence how you will spend the premium, but it acts as a review document to reflect on your current circumstances.

In our next blog will look in further detail at the guidance for spending the Primary PE and Sport Premium; the first payment arrives in schools between 31st October and 1st November 2017. In the mean time, the website reporting tool is a great place to start to help get to grips with your new funding.


“All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.”
