PE Premium

The government require schools to use the Primary PE and Sports Premium (PPSP) funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sports offered to pupils.

 This means that Guillemont Junior School uses the PPSP to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

 There are 5 key indicators that Guillemont Junior School expects to see improvement across:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity. The Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in our school
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across our 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 our pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport.

This includes:

  • providing staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • hiring qualified sports coaches to work with teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities
  • introducing new sports, dance or other activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities
  • supporting and involving the least active children by providing targeted activities, and running or extending school sports and holiday clubs
  • entering or running more sport competitions
  • partnering with other schools to run sports activities and clubs
  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • encouraging pupils to take on leadership or volunteering roles that support sport and physical activity within our school
  • providing additional swimming provision targeted to pupils not able to meet the swimming requirements of the national curriculum
  • embedding physical activity into our school day through active travel to and from school, active playgrounds and active teaching

 The PPSP is not used to fund:

  • employing coaches or specialist teachers to cover planning preparation and assessment (PPA) arrangements
  • teaching the minimum requirements of the national curriculum  including those specified for swimming.


The Curriculum and Standards Committee of the Governing Body and the Full Governing Body monitor the use of the PPSP funding and ensure that it is used to deliver the five key indicators of success. 

Ofsted assesses how primary schools use the primary PE and sport premium. They measure its impact on pupil outcomes, and how effectively governors hold school leaders to account for this.

You can find details of what inspectors look for in the ‘effectiveness of leadership and management’ section of the ‘Ofsted schools inspection handbook 2015’.
