Sports Premium

PE and Sport Premium

The Government are spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in Primary Schools over the 3 academic years 2013/2014, 2014/2015 and 2015/2016. This funding has now been guaranteed to continue until 2020. This extra funding goes directly to Primary Headteachers and schools can choose how they use the funding.

In 2017/18, Sport Premium funding has doubled and for our school, is expected to be £17,490.  We intend to use this funding to improve PE skills and participation in sport in the following ways ;

  • Purchase of new fixed outdoor play equipment and renewal of older equipment
  • Continue to offer a wide variety of after-school activity clubs with participation open to all pupils
  • Funding travel costs to inter-school sporting taster sessions and competitive events, and contributing to confederation sports events.
