The Primary PE and Sport Premium was introduced in March 2013 to improve the provision of Physical Education and school sport in Primary schools across England.
It is designed to help children get an active start in life, supporting Primary schools to improve the quality of their PE and sport provision so that pupils experience the benefits of regular exercise from becoming healthier both mentally and physically to improved behaviour and better academic achievement.
The PE and Sport Premium is a ring-fenced grant for English Primary schools to provide additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE, sport and physical activity. Allocations to schools are determined by a formula based on pupil numbers. The average one form entry Primary school will receive roughly £18,000 per year.

Physical Education is an important part of our Curriculum and such that we ensure that all children participate in 2 hours of physical activity weekly. In addition to being taught: , , aspects of and , our Year 2 children are given the opportunity to attend at the local Leisure Centre, funded by the PE and Sport Premium. These regular timetabled lessons are also supported by daily extra-curricular clubs and a week-long programme of sports events in our, ‘School Sports Week’.
Chalfont St Peter Infant School considers that PE is an important aspect of our curriculum and ensures that our children are provided with rich opportunities to participate within a team, with a partner or as an individual.
Each academic year our annual is a culmination of an excellent year of participation in sport. Our House Teams of Red, Blue, Green and Yellow Teams enjoy competitive races where they participate on an individual basis and as part of a team. The successful Team Captains hold the Sports Shield aloft as their victorious team run a 'lap of honour'!
Please note that this document outlines PE activities undertaken when the School is operating under normal circumstances. However, this has been reviewed during a period of global pandemic-related disruption. From 23rd March 2020 there was a national Lockdown, due to the spread of the Coronavirus. Schools across the UK were closed to all pupils except the most vulnerable children and the children of Key Workers. The usual provision and curriculum were suspended. Full school reopening did not occur until Sept 2020. Restrictions regarding social distancing and other health measures remain in place and have rendered it impossible for PSD and swimming provision to take place.
