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 2017 -18, each school will receive £16,000 plus an additional sum per pupil. Money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
As a school, we have attained high standards in a range of sports, and have targeted funding to engage more pupils in sports, to further up-skill the staff, to provide enrichment opportunities for all pupils including gifted and talented and to improve resources for teaching and assessment.
