Physical Education and Sport Premium

The vision for the Primary Physical Education (PE) and Sport Premium is that ‘all pupils leave primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.’

The funding that is allocated is in addition to the curriculum funding for PE and sport from the main school budget and aims to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of sport in primary schools.

Schools are encouraged to use this funding in a multitude of ways

  • Hire qualified sports coaches to work alongside class teachers
  • Provide existing staff with teaching resources to assist them to teach PE and sport more effectively
  • Introduce new sports or activities
  • Support and involve the least active children through a range of activities
  • Run sports competitions and activities with other schools

At Thomas Jones, we have a PE Development Plan in order to continue to improve provision and to raise the achievement of all pupils in PE and Sport. Our key objectives are to:

  • Improve the quality and range of PE
  • Increase involvement and participation in local competitive tournaments and sports festivals and to evidence the impact these experiences have on pupils
  • Raise the profile of sport and encourage all children to participate
  • Continue to improve the quality of premises to ensure PE can be taught in a safe environment
  • Ensure that PE is adequately resourced

The school was allocated £17,810 for the academic year 2022/23. Details of how the school allocated this funding and evidence of the impact throughout the year is set out in our PE and Sport Premium Grant Funding Allocation and Expenditure Report 2022-23, which is available in the right hand column.

The school has been allocated £17,810 for the academic year 2023/24. Details of how we allocated this funding and evidence of the impact it made will be published in our PE and Sport Premium Report in July 2024. 

Schools are expected to evaluate their use of the PE & Sport Premium against the following five key indicators:

  • Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity and promoting healthy active lifestyles
  • Profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a vehicle for whole school improvement in regard to healthy living per se
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in the teaching of PE
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to pupils
  • Increased participation in competitive sport.

The impact of the PE and Sport Premium at Thomas Jones is cross referenced to these five key indicators.
