Primary PE and Sports (PESS) Premium 

Unicorn Primary- Sports Premium Funding

From 2013-2016 the Government has provided funding of £450 million to enhance the availability and quality of Physical Education and Sports provision for all Primary school pupils. This funding has been jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. This funding is ring-fenced meaning that there are a set of strict criteria outlining what schools can and cannot spend the funding on. However, schools are able to choose how it is spent in accordance with the identification of specific interests and needs of their pupils within their unique settings. Accountability for the funding rests with all primary schools with the added responsibility of reporting online both spend and impact to the wider community. 

At Unicorn we believe that physical education, sport and active healthy lifestyles are crucial to children’s all round development. It is not only about enjoyment but should be used to promote a healthy lifestyle, confidence, teamwork, social skills and a positive mind-set. With the school sports premium (PESS) we are committed to following recommended and statutory guidelines as well as embracing the DfE vision statement for the national Physical Education & School Sport Strategy.

DfE Vision Statement for Primary PE and Sports Premium

All pupils leave primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

In 2019, we received £20,000 of PE and Sports Premium. Please see the attached document which shows the range of PE and sports activities offered as a result of receiving this funding.
