Sports and PE Premium Funding
The Government is providing funding of £150 million to provide new, ‘substantial primary school sport funding’. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools, but we have the freedom to choose how we do this.
Funding for schools will be calculated by the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual schools census in January 2016.
All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Therefore, our school will receive approximately £9000.
For the 2018/19 academic year the government will be increasing the grant to £18 000. The below document will be updated on an annual basis
