Sport Premium Funding

The legacy of the 2012 Summer Olympics and Paralympics has had an impact on interest and involvement in sports, especially in school. Since the 2013/14 academic year the government has provided money for schools to improve the quality of PE and sport.

This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - is allocated to primary school headteachers. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.  The objective of the funding is to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools.

Hillingdon Primary shares the Department for Education's vision that all pupils leaving HPS are physically literate with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

Schools are held to account over how they spend their additional, ring-fenced funding. Ofsted have strengthened the coverage of PE and sport within the 'Inspectors’ handbook' and supporting guidance so that both schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed.  Schools are also required to include details of their provision of PE and sport on their website so that parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within and beyond the school day.
