About the PE and sport Premium Funding


Schools have a central role to play in supporting all children and young people to live healthy active lives. This is particularly true of primary school where the foundations of positive and enjoyable participation in regular physical activity should be established. Crucial to achieving this is ensuring that pupils have access to at least 30 minutes of physical activity during the school day, alongside high-quality PE provision taught by confident and knowledgeable teachers and opportunities to experience and participate in a wide range of sports and physical activities. PE and sport premium grant funding should be used by schools towards these aims.


We believe that the Sport Premium funding should support three key areas: physical education, healthy & active lifestyles and participation in competitions and local initiatives in the community. Our rationale at Hever Primary School is that the funding should be used in a fully inclusive manner, to benefit all pupils, not just those who excel in sports. We believe in nurturing talent and in giving opportunities to try a range of sports.
