Sports Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

The government has committed to spend over £450 million on improving physical education and sport in primary schools during the academic years 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16. This extra funding is allocated directly to individual primary schools and it is the responsibility of the Headteacher and the PE Subject leader to allocate the money to fund PE and sport provision in the school in the best possible way.


Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:


  • hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers during PE lessons
  • provide places for children in after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs
  • pay for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
  • run sport competitions in school and with other schools
  • buy resources to enhance the quality of PE teaching


How much do we receive?


Funding is allocated on the basis of £8000 per school, plus £5 for every child aged 5 or over on the school roll in January 2016. For our school, the funding for 2016-17 was £8473.
