Active Essex has been commissioned by Sport England to monitor and support schools across Greater Essex. This support aims to ensure that Essex schools make the maximum use of the PE and School Sport Premium for Primary Schools and that they are using the funding appropriately and complying with the ‘grant conditions’. In addition it will enable schools to approach any OFSTED inspection with confidence. These resources provide guidance which is central to this process.


Making the Most of the Primary PE and Sport Premium Funding

Recording of the Active Essex Webinar:

Synopsis: This webinar focused on how schools can maximise the 20/21 Primary PE and Sport Premium grant and utilise any underspend from the 19/20 academic year to benefit young people in Greater Essex schools. The discussion and advice we based around the 5 key objectives for funding spend, all in the context of the current post- lockdown climate. The webinar will also provide some examples from around the county of how schools are effectively using the grant to support the health and wellbeing of young people and current whole school priorities.


Evidencing the Impact of the Primary PE & Sport Premium (Oct 2020)

Being able to demonstrate the impact of this funding is essential to continue to build the picture for the need for future funding.  Publishing the spend and impact is also a condition of the grant. Annually, Active Essex complete an audit of all of our schools websites to ensure that this information is available, and that it is clear and easy to see the difference that this funding has made. From this information we create a local picture, (returned to the DfE) this includes trends in spend, swimming data, highlights areas of need and allows us to pick up and share good practice and ideas.

The following template is the most effective way to ensure you address all of the necessary criteria when reporting spend and impact:
