Sports & PE Premium: Measuring action and success

30 November 2017

In our last blog, we looked at some of the ways you can spend your Sports & PE Premium. In this blog, we take a look at how the funding is measured, your responsibilities and some of the challenges you might face.

Reporting is a big part of the PE and Sports Premium. There are five key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across: 

the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity - the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school 
the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement 
increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport 
broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils 
increased participation in competitive sport. 

This measurement is done in a number of ways: 

• Ofsted inspection - Ofsted assesses how primary schools use the primary PE and sport premium. They measure its impact on pupil outcomes, and how effectively governors hold school leaders to account for this. 

• Self-assessment - You must publish (on your website) details of how you spend your PE and sport premium funding. This must include the amount of premium received a full breakdown of how it has been spent (or will be spent), the impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment, and how the improvements will be sustainable in the future.
