Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
What is the Sports Premium?
From September 2013 the Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic year to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding will be allocated to primary school headteachers. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. OFSTED will play a significant role in ensuring that schools target this funding in areas which will lead to clear outcomes in raising standards and opportunities in PE and school sport for all children throughout the Primary Phase. All schools will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil.
Purpose of Funding
Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
