Sports Grant

What is the Sports Premium?

The government has committed to allocating the “Sports Premium” to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

In 2014 -15, each school received £8,000 plus an additional sum per pupil. Money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools although not on building projects e.g. towards our new school PE hall.

We have high standards attained in Sports, and have targeted funding to engage even more pupils in sports, to up-skill the staff Team further, to provide enrichment opportunities for all pupils including gifted and talented and to improve resources for teaching and assessment.
