If your school receives PE and sport premium funding, you must publish on your school website:
- the amount of premium received;
- a full breakdown of how it has been spent (or will be spent);
- what impact the school has seen on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment; and
- how the improvements will be sustainable in the future.
You are also required to publish the percentage of pupils within your year 6 cohort who met the national curriculum requirement to:
- swim competently, confidently, and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 metres;
- use a range of strokes effectively (for example front crawl, backstroke, and breaststroke); and
- perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations.
You must publish all the information in this section by the end of the summer term. This is outlined in the conditions of grant.
Looking forward to the year ended 31 August 2024, the DfE is going to publish a new digital reporting tool.
This digital tool will capture details on how the school has used its PE and sport premium and the impact it has had on achieving the aims and objectives of the funding.
The information gathered will include:
- figures on the overall spend;
- what the funding has been spent on;
- whether there is any unspent funding; and
- swimming and water safety attainment.
The digital tool will be piloted for the academic year 2023 to 2024 and will become a mandatory requirement for schools to complete from the 2024 to 2025 academic year onwards. The digital tool will provide a further measure of accountability and will help identify any non-compliant spending of the PE and sport premium. The digital tool is expected to be launched in May/June 2024 and further information is expected to be received nearer to this time.
If your primary school has not yet published its report for 2022-23, it is recommended that this is done as soon as possible.
