WHAT IS ‘PE AND SPORT PREMIUM’ FUNDING?
Primary PE and Sport Premium is an initiative that aims to help increase and improve the PE and sporting opportunities for children. It was first provided in the 2013/14 academic year and the current government has pledged to continue this funding until 2020.
PE and Sport Premium funding is provided jointly by the Department for Education, the Department for Health and Culture and the Department for Media and Sport. It has been allocated to primary school headteachers and is ring-fenced, meaning that it can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.
The Government believes that headteachers and school leaders should decide how to use the funding for PE and Sports in school. They are held accountable for the decisions they make through:
- The performance outcomes of all pupils compared with their peers
- The Ofsted inspection framework, under which inspectors focus on the attainment of pupil groups, in particular in those areas where specific funding has been provided
- The reports that schools are required to publish online for Parents

Physical Education Mission Statement
Physical Education is a high priority curriculum area of study at Brockley Primary School. All lessons are based on the fundamentals (ABC’s) of movement for the long term athletic developments of all pupils. The ‘I can do it’ theme is referred to throughout all lessons to help pupils progress, improve their well-being and increase confidence.
Attention to the whole child’s development is also promoted in lessons to engage them to think healthy, develop their physical ability and improve their social aspects both for today and their future.
To improve teacher delivery of high quality Physical Education, school employed a specialist PE Consultant, whose input of CPD was employed for each term for one afternoon a week across the academic year 2016/2017. Teachers worked with their class alongside the specialist – observing, team teaching, sharing good practice which in turn leads to the delivery of sessions that are observed by the specialist and amendments shared leading to improved outcomes for pupils in future sessions.
The Physical Education curriculum includes at Brockley Primary School includes:
The delivery of the Physical Education curriculum is clearly mapped across the academic year. Lessons are fully inclusive, active and fun where all pupils make good progress and build self-confidence via the ‘I can do it’ theme.
