Resources – Evidencing the Impact of the Primary PE & Sport Premium

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:
