All young people should have the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age can build a lifetime habit of participation and is central to meeting the government’s ambitions for a world-class education system. Physical activity has numerous benefits for children and young people’s physical health, as well as their mental wellbeing (increasing self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and lowering anxiety and depression), and children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers. Ensuring that pupils have access to sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits for pupils and schools, improving behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement. (PE and Sport for Primary Schools, 2020).
How it is calculated:
Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.
Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
2020/2021 expected amount for Hadleigh Junior School to receive: £19,370
Spend carried over from 2019/2020: £296.63
Hadleigh Junior School spends this money by following the 5 key indicators which are:
• Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
• 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.
