Measuring impact

The sports premium funding should be used to make additional and sustainable improvements to your PE and sports provision. Reporting on the impact of the funding is just as important as deciding how you are going to spend the PE premium. It communicates how effective this funding is in your school.

What will Ofsted look for? Inspectors have been asked to consider the impact of the primary school sport funding on pupils’ lifestyles and physical well-being, by taking into account the following factors:

  • The increase in participation rates in activities such as games, dance, gymnastics, swimming and athletics
  • The increase and success in competitive school sports
  • How much more inclusive the physical education curriculum has become
  • The growth in the range of provisional and alternative sporting activities
  • The improvement in the quality of teaching and learning and evidence of this
  • Links with other subjects that contribute to pupils’ overall achievement and their greater social, spiritual, moral and cultural skills
  • Increased awareness amongst pupils about the dangers of obesity, smoking and other such activities that undermine pupils’ health
