Danesholme Infant Academy

PE & Sports Premium

Vision and Aims for PE, School Sport and Physical Activity (PESSPA)

Here at Danesholme Infant Academy our Vision is to provide the highest quality, healthy PESSPA for all of our children of all abilities.


We aim to ensure the following outcomes for our children:

  • Children who enjoy engaging in healthy, physical activity
  • Children who understand that PE, Sport and Physical Activity are an important part of a healthy, active lifestyle
  • Children who develop confidence and a love of movement through physical literacy and fundamental movement skills
  • Children who develop skills, knowledge and understanding of all aspects of National Curriculum PE
  • Children who develop personal qualities and social and thinking skills through healthy, physical activity

The PE and Sport Premium

The Government is providing schools and academies with children of primary age annual funding to enhance the quality of PESSPA provision.

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect 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 school
  • the 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

We will use our PE and Sport Premium funding strategically to not only see improvements across the above key indicators, but to also support us to achieve our Vision and Aims. We will also ensure that our funding is used to make additional and sustainable improvements to our PESSPA provision for all of our children.

Greenwood Academies Trust – PE and Sport Premium Support Package

As part of the commitment to the development of primary sport, the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust has created a strategic plan to enhance provision and generate longevity through individual bespoke training opportunities.

To facilitate this plan, a proportion of the Sport Premium Funding (£2,200 per Academy) will be utilised. The remaining funding will be used by Principals to further enrich their PE and sport provision, taking into consideration individual sports partnerships, tailored areas for curriculum development and localised specialist providers and facilities.


Online reporting

We are required to publish details of how we are spending our PE and sport premium funding. This must include:

  • the amount of premium received
  • a full breakdown of how it has been spent (or will be spent)
  • the impact the academy has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment
  • how the improvements will be sustainable in the future


Ofsted inspections and Accountability Reviews

Ofsted assesses how primary and infant schools and academies use the primary PE and sport premium. As part of their Section 5 Inspections they measure its impact on pupil outcomes, and how effectively school leaders are held to account for this

Ofsted also carry out website Accountability Reviews to see if schools and academies have published details on their websites of how they have spent their premium funding and whether they are compliant with the online reporting requirements.
