Inspecting primary school PE and school sport: new funding

Section 5 inspections of maintained schools and academies with primary-aged pupils:

  1. From 1 September 2013, inspectors will assess and report on how effectively this new funding is being used to improve PE and sport provision when making the judgement on the quality of the school’s leadership and management.
  2. Inspectors will use evidence gained from meetings with school leaders, including governors to assess the impact of additional funding on improving the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. Inspectors may also use evidence from observations of lessons and/or extra-curricular sports clubs, and discussions with pupils. Inspectors may also review the details of a school’s PE and sport provision on their school website prior to an inspection. 
  3. The School inspection handbook[1] and Subsidiary guidance[2] have been updated to include these changes.
  4. Evidence gained from section 5 inspections from September 2013 will be collated and published on the Ofsted website. Ofsted will also survey selected schools and report in early autumn on the impact of the additional funding.
