PREMIUM FUNDING

Putting PE, School Sport and Physical Activity at the heart of your Curriculum.

At CMXSC we believe that Physical Education, School Sport and Physical activity (PESSPA) should be at the heart of the school day with as much emphasis places on physical education in line with Maths and English. More and more research is providing evidence that it benefits physical health, social and emotional wellbeing, academic performance, behaviour and much more which directly impacts children's ability to learn.

Every child in every school deserves the opportunity to have and experience high quality PE Provision and we are trying support schools with their PE mission. Every teacher in every school also deserves the opportunity to have continuous professional development and the opportunity to enjoy physical education and the delivery of PE & Sport in the schools they teach in.​ PE is more than physical, it also focuses on the social, emotional and cognitive side of a child’s growth and development. 

Primary PE and sport premium to continue at £320 million for 2022-23

The Department for Education has confirmed today that the Primary PE and sport premium funding will continue for academic year 2022-23.

The funding is a ring-fenced grant for English primary schools to provide additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE, sport and physical activity. Allocations to schools are determined by a formula based on pupil numbers. The average one form entry primary school will receive roughly £18,000 for the academic year 2022-23.

 

£320 million will be delivered to schools in 2022/23 to give more children access to high quality PE lessons and sporting opportunities, supporting both their physical and mental wellbeing. In addition, £11 million will also support the continuation of the School Games programme to give particularly passionate and talented young people the opportunity to participate in competitive sport.

The PE and sport premium and School Games programme support the government’s commitment to ensuring children and young people have access to at least 60 minutes, or 20 minutes for children with a disability, of physical activity a day. Building on this commitment, £10 million is supporting schools to open up sport and swimming facilities.

 

The Department for Education has already provided funding from phase one and two of this initiative to schools and is currently procuring a national delivery partner to allocate further funding and advice to schools over the next phase of the programme.

Nadhim Zahawi, Education Secretary said:

The PE and sport premium will continue to support schools and I hope that upcoming events like the Women’s Euros and Commonwealth Games will inspire more young people to get active.

 

These opportunities will give thousands more pupils access to an ambitious, enriching curriculum that not only supports them academically, but also supports their physical and mental wellbeing.
