P.E. and Sports Premium Funding
We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of our children. We also recognise the importance of PE to the health and well-being of our pupils.
Our Sports Premium Funding will enable us to expand our PE provision to allow increased PE for every class in order to support our ‘Healthy School’ accreditation and allow for greater participation in sport in the community. This will also include increasing the range of sports we provide to our pupils.
What is the Sports Premium?
The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is provided jointly by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their pupils. Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5.00 per pupil each year for the next two years. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision.
Purpose of the funding
This funding is allocated to schools in order to improve their sports and PE provision, in a way which best suits the schools and the needs of its pupils.
