Living Sport

PE and Sport Premium for Primary Schools Support

Target audience: Senior management

Method of delivery : Small group – usually Head Teacher, PE lead

Intended outcomes: Improved provision of PE, sport and physical activity through the spending of the PE and Sport Premium

Summary of Intervention/Programme: Living Sport is funded by Sport England to review the spending of the Premium by Primary Schools and to offer support and guidance to Primary Schools as part of the Government’s drive to ensure that the Sport Premium is used as effectively as possible in all schools. We offer schools, who feel they need support, a free review of their PE and sport provision with an experienced advisor, who will work with the Head Teacher and subject leader to help assess the existing PE and Sport delivery and then offer advice about what the school might choose to plan to do, sharing all the good quality agency support that is available from both local and national partners. The aim of this work is to ensure:

  • Clear independent advice is given schools due to the wide range of offers available
  • That the maximum impact is gained by schools from Primary Sports Premium funding
  • That schools are ready for inspections by Ofsted who will be monitoring the impact of the Primary Sports Premium funding

Active Lives Children and Young People Survey

Target audience: Contact through Senior Management/PE Lead for 7 – 16 year olds to take part.

Method of delivery: Online Surveys

Intended outcomes: Data collected from the pupils at selected schools will be invaluable in understanding not only the levels of participation but also attitudes to sport and physical activity which will ultimately help shape future policy and investment in local areas.

Summary of Intervention/Programme: The Active Lives Children and Young People Survey is a Sport England run project which has been developed by the Department of Education, the Department of Health and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. The survey is aimed at children and young people to measure participation in sport and physical activity in school years 1 to 11.  The study will provide Sport England, government departments and other partners with a broad and deeper understanding of participation in, and attitudes towards, sport and physical activity, shaping future policy and investment.  Schools taking part will be able to learn more about their pupil’s engagement in sport and physical activity enabling them to compare against national data and further understand the need and interests of their pupils. Schools will be selected at random by Ipsos MORI who will be carrying out the survey on behalf of Sport England and Government departments with support from a national network of Active Partnerships (APs) who work in partnership with Sport England to support local communities. For more information on whether your school has been selected to take part or how you can opt-in your school, please contact Jayne Thacker: jayne.thacker@livingsport.co.uk.
