Updated guidance for the Primary PE and Sport Premium has been released today by the Department for Education.
The guidance includes:
- An increased priority for the continued professional development (CPD) of teachers to make sure that the future quality of the teaching of PE, sport and physical activity is sustainable.
- Updates on the new digital PE and sport premium reporting tool which increases the accountability of schools to spend the premium effectively. This digital tool will capture details on how a school has used its PE and sport premium and the impact it has had on achieving the aims and objectives of the funding. The tool will be piloted in 2023-24 and will become mandatory in 2024-25
- More defined criteria for the use of the Primary PE and Sport Premium on capital expenditure. We recommend schools familiarise themselves with this.
The guidance is available in full on the Government website.
Yorkshire Sport Foundation is here to provide schools with impartial support and guidance on the most effective ways to spend the Primary PE and Sport Premium in a sustainable way.
If you are looking to upskill any teachers, HLTAs or wider staff involved in the delivery of physical education then our Level 5 and Level 6 National PE Qualifications are here to help and more information on these courses and how to book on can be found on our website.
The updated guidance is part of the newly released School Sport and Activity Action Plan, which outlines the Government approach to improve the quality of PE and school sport provision.
