Guidance for the nomination submission
Who can nominate:
Any school receiving the Primary PE and School Sport premium is eligible to nominate or be nominated for an award;
• The school (teacher, support staff, governor etc.)
• A parent / extended family member
• A partner of the school (local authority, academy sponsor, school games organiser, coaching organisation etc.)
The 2018/19 awards were received in May 2019 and winners were announced following an assessment panel in June 2019.
Before applying, ensure that your submission:
- Is innovative
- How has the school delivered something additional which is ground breaking and original which other schools can learn from?
- Is sustainable
- How has the school ensured that the impact of an additional intervention can be maintained after the grant is no longer provided?
- Impacts on pupils – this is crucial if your submission is to be successful
- How has the school ensured and measured (evidence will be required) that pupils benefit from the intervention?
Applications will be considered more favourably if the following are referenced:
• Transition (i.e. how pupils will continue to benefit when they move on to secondary schools)
• Social mobility (i.e. how pupil's future prospects have or will be improved)
• The school's journey from under-performing to over-performing in your chosen area
Applications should include innovative interventions, projects or other activities which have improved outcomes for pupils. Your example should have developed or added to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers and make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years. Impact should be clearly measured and applications should include qualitative and/or quantitative evidence including quotes from teachers, pupils and, where possible, parents.
