PE and Sport Premium


Physical Education (PE) is the planned, progressive learning that takes place in our school curriculum, which is delivered to all pupils (from Nursery, through to Y6). PE involves learning to move (i.e. becoming more physically competent) and moving to learn (i.e. learning through movement, a range of skills and understandings beyond physical activity such as co-operating with others). The context of the learning is physical activity, with children experiencing a broad range of activities, including sport, gymnastics and dance.



School sport is the structured learning that takes place beyond the curriculum (i.e. the extended curriculum) within school settings. Again, the context of the learning is physical activity. The aim of the sports programme is to develop and broaden the foundation learning that takes place in PE. It also forms a vital link with " community sport and activity."


Below is further information about the School Games Competitions we participate in every year.

Each Key Stage holds an annual Sports Day in the summer term.



Physical Activity is the broad term that describes bodily movement, posture and balance. All require energy. It includes all form of PE., sports and dance activities. However, it is wider than this, as it also includes indoor and outdoor play, work-related activity, outdoor & adventurous activities. active travel (e.g. walking, cycling and routine habitual activities such as using the stairs, homework & gardening).


We encourage physical activity throughout the school day. This includes break times and active breaks in lessons.


Pupils can now safely bring their bikes & scooters to school and park them in our bike rack, located at the front of the school building.


INTENT: The aim of the Sports Premium Grant

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.


The School Sport and Activity Action Plan set out government’s commitment to ensuring that children and young people have access to at least 60 minutes of sport and physical activity per day, with a recommendation of 30 minutes of this delivered during the school day (in line with the Chief Medical Officers guidelines, which recommends an average of at least 60 minutes per day across the week).


The PE and sport premium can help primary schools to achieve this aim, providing primary schools with £320m of government funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered through their core budgets. It is allocated directly to schools so they have the flexibility to use it in the way that works best for their pupils. The PE and sport premium survey highlighted the significant impact which PE and Sport has had in many primary schools across England.


This means that we use the PE and sport premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport that our school provides
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years


The PE and sport premium is used to secure improvements in the following 5 ways:

  1. Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
  2. Profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  3. Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. Increased participation in competitive sport


Healey is a member of the North Kirklees School Games Partnership. Membership provides our pupils to attend a variety of sports which can be competitive (pathway competition), inclusive (support SEND pupils & reluctant children) as well as sporting festivals to encourage pupils to be more active.

IMPACT of the Sports Premium Grant: School Games Awards

School Games Criteria:

The School Games Mark is a government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Participating in this process allows schools to evaluate their PE provision and assists them in developing an action plan for future progress. We are proud to have achieved the Gold Standard Award again in 2022/23.


What are the key criteria?


Each School Games Mark application is divided into four sets of questions. They cover the following basic topics...

  • Participation - how many young people at your school are being engaged in sporting activity?
  • Competition - how many different sports are being played and how many competitions are being entered?
  • Workforce - how many pupils are involved in leadership activities alongside taking part in competitions?
  • Clubs - how many local links does your school have with clubs or establishments from the area?


Online Reporting

Schools must publish details of how we spend our PE and sport premium funding by the end of the summer term or by 31 July  each year.
