PE and Sport Premium

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

What is the Sports Premium?  


The Government is providing £150 million per academic year until 2016 (to be reviewed). This is to provide new and substantial primary school sports funding. This funding is jointly provided by the Department of Education, Health and Culture, and Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.


What does this mean for schools? 


  • Funding for every school with primary aged pupils
  • A lump sum with per-pupil-top-up
  • Funding to be provided to schools for academic years 2013-14 and 2014-15
  • Funding only to be spent on PE and school sports
  • Tougher assessment of sport via OFSTED
  • New provision as part of teacher training
  • Annual survey to report against expenditure and impacts


We think this is great news to improve the opportunities and experiences for our children.
