What is the PE and Sports Premium?

The government provides additional funding for maintained schools and academies to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and Sport. Each school will receive £16,000 plus an extra £10 per pupil each year. For 2022/2023 this money equates to £19,400.

At Rowlatts Mead, we identify the contribution of PE and Sport to the health and well-being of the children. We are firm believers that an innovative and varied PE Curriculum, combined with regular extra-curricular activities have a positive influence on developing children’s physical literacy resulting in increased levels of concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.

How do we use the PE and Sports Premium?

At Rowlatts Mead, we aim to use the PE and Sports Premium effectively to see continued improvements against the following five key indicators:

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – at least thirty minutes of physical activity in school per day.
  • The profile of PESSPA being 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.

The Impact in 2022 – 23

This academic year with Rowlatts Mead there have been great improvements within Physical Education and Sport across the school.

During the year, pupils have been offered a wide range of sports in the form of curricular and extra-curricular offers. Some of the sports offered include: football, tag rugby, badminton, basketball, netball, dance, swimming, athletics, handball, hockey, cricket, gymnastics, dodge ball and dancercise. This year 52% of pupils from KS1 and KS2 attended an extra-curricular sports club.

External coaches and agencies have been utilised for Physical Education and Sports Clubs. Some of these include: Leicester Tigers, Leicester Badminton, Leicester Foxes and Moving Together. As well as providing pupils with expertise coaching, it has also contributed to the CPD of staff seeing an increased confidence in this subject.

The Physical Education and Sports Curriculum at Rowlatts Mead is playing a vitally important role in contributing to pupil’s behaviour and welfare; including their physical, mental and personal well-being.

Physical Education is taught to all pupils, our EYFS to Year 6; enabling them to develop good basic skills at a young age which they then build upon as they move through a carefully structured and challenging programme. Rowlatts’ aims to provide pupil with positive experiences which will develop an enthusiasm in the pupil’s which will see them inspired and involved in sport for many years to come.

Through our involvement with The Mead Educational Trust, we have been able to participate in a wider number of inter-school competitions and activities; bringing pupils from across the city together. This academic year we had a figure of 62% of pupils representing the school in a sporting competition.
