Funding Moki with the PE and Sport Premium

Moki and the PE and Sport Premium Funding scheme

We’ve been asked by a number of UK schools about the purchase of Moki using funds drawn from the PE and Sport Premium initiative, led by the UK Department of Education.

Moki is perfectly aligned with the eligibility criteria for PE and Sport Premium funding and additionally allows schools to use the Moki data to evidence the use and impact of these funds in an appropriate way to all stakeholders.

What is the PE and Sport Premium?

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. The funding is allocated directly to primary schools and is ring-fenced. This means it may only be spent on improving the provision of PE and sport in schools.

It was confirmed by the Department of Education that the £320 million PE and Sport Premium will continue in the 2020 to 2021 academic year.

How does Moki address the eligibility criteria?

We’ve created this guide based on information from the website to illustrate how Moki is aligned to Sports Premium.

Funding Criteria Moki How does Moki meet this?

you should use the premium to...

develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport activities that your school already offers

Moki has been shown to develop the individuals and teachers ability to create new activities and assess their merit (by reviewing the Moki data). Moki also allows new challenges (activities) to be delivered by the school which increases activity levels

you should use the premium to...

build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future year

Moki can be used in one class, then moved to a separate class or year or group of individuals. Moki will continue to deliver benefit from the initial spend many years after the purchase. Moki has no time dependencies

Schools can use the premium to secure improvements in the following indicators...

the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school

Moki has the ability to report on which children are meeting the 30 minute MVPA criteria. Our proprietary algorithm allows schools to evidence that these CMO guidelines are being achieved

Schools can use the premium to secure improvements in the following indicators...

the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement

Moki's unique activity counter can be added to the school website and highlighted across the school estate to increase awareness of how many steps are being taken by the school - this visibility to children, teachers, parents and all visitors ensures that the school takes physical health seriously

Schools can use the premium to secure improvements in the following indicators...

increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport

Access to real life, real time data allows teachers to understand the actual activity levels derived from the classes provided - on an individual level. This creates a shared skillset across the school of what works when delivering physical activity so that these can be delivered with confidence, backed up by data.

Schools can use the premium to secure improvements in the following indicators...

broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils

Moki decouples physical activity from sport and has been shown to increase non-sport related movement and activities. Teaching children simply to move/run/skip/jump rather than sit / stand has shown increases in a range of activity

Schools can use the premium to secure improvements in the following indicators...

increased participation in competitive sport

Engaging children with their own activity score create competition and an eagerness to meet pre-set Moki levels (which can be unique to each child) this drives up willingness to play in competitive sport.

How to use the PE and Sport Premium

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education (PE), physical activity and sport on offer.
