On the 25th October, the Government released the latest information about the premium for 2019-2020. The guidance embraces the wish for all children to access a 'positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age' in order to build a 'habit of participation' for life. The DfE have ensured that through the Education Inspection Framework (EIF), Ofsted inspectors will recognise schools for their work to support the personal development of pupils, including opportunities for children to learn about eating healthily and adopting active lifestyles.
In total, the Government will allocate £320 million this year, to improve the quality of PE and sport experiences for children in Years 1-6. The GOV.UK website gives clear guidance on how much PE and sport premium funding schools receive and advice on how it should be spent.
