AMV Playgrounds have been trading for over 30 years. During that time we have been at the forefront of developing solutions with school leaders and physical education experts to encourage children of all ages and abilities to get outdoors, get active and develop the lifelong skills and habits that enable them to enjoy the rewards of physical exercise, in whatever form they enjoy most.

So armed with this unique perspective and decades of combined experience working closely with schools all over the UK, we feel we have some valuable contributions and practical insights to the very important question currently faced by all state primary schools in England...

How should we spend our remaining PE Sports funding in order to have the greatest possible impact upon healthy outcomes for the young children whose lives we help to shape?

We hope you find our guide helpful, valuable, thought provoking and most of all practical!

What topics does the guide cover?


With nearly a third of children aged 2-15 overweight, the department of health has called upon all areas of society to taken action, with a particular emphasis on schools playing a key role. At the same time, schools themselves are under greater pressure than ever to perform across an ever growing set of metrics, whilst at the same time budgets are being stripped away, putting a strain on the resources required to achieve success in all areas.

This guide aims to map out some simple, practical steps to help schools achieve their healthy outcome objectives, whilst also demonstrating best value in the process.


OFSTED has set out a comprehensive list of criteria detailing how it will evaluate all schools receiving the School Sports Premium. This includes not only assessing the effectiveness of how schools have spent their money but also how well schools evaluate the ongoing impact that the premium is having on improving PE and sports provision, as well as other objectives identified.

This guide aims to clearly list the success criteria set out by OFSTED and suggest methods by which to meet these demands effectively, and in a way that is both realistic and achievable.
