Sports Premium Funding


 What is the Sports Premium?

The government provides funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.  This funding began in the academic year 2013-2014.

Our school falls into the category of schools with 17 or more eligible pupils and therefore receives a lump sum of £8,000 plus £5 per eligible pupil.

What is the purpose of the funding? This funding must be used to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the year that it is allocated, so that they develop healthy lifestyles. 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. Possible uses for the funding include:

  • Hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers during PE lessons
  • Support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs
  • Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport 
  • Run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the school games and sports
  • Run sports activities with other schools
  • Provide places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs

How will we be spending the Sports Funding and who will benefit?

The Governors agree that the money must be used so that:

  • All children benefit regardless of sporting ability or age
  • That the most able sports children are given the opportunity to compete in inter-school competitions and tournaments
  • That staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development
  • Swimming is subsidised in order to support all families financially with the costs

Sports funding this year is approximately £9,235.
