Ladycross Infant and Nursery School

PE and Sport Premium



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.

Primary PE and Sport Premium is an initiative that aims to help increase and improve the PE and sporting opportunities for children. It was first provided in the 2013/14 academic year and the current government has pledged to continue this funding until August 2024.

PE and Sport Premium funding is provided jointly by the Department for Education, the Department for Health and Culture and the Department for Media and Sport.  It has been allocated to primary school headteachers and is ring-fenced, meaning that it can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.


How is the money spent?

Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality, breadth and profile of PE and sport so that pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of. For further information on how much PE and sport premium schools receive and advice on how it should be spent, click on the link below.


In order to ensure all young people have access to high-quality PE, physical activity and school sport, schools are required to publish details of their sporting provision on their websites.


Below are our most recent PE and sports premium action plan showing how we intend to utilise our funding across the school to improve our PE and sport provision.
