What is Sports Premium funding?
In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.
Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
In 2014, the government decided that sports premium funding would carry on till 2020. Money is directly given to primary schools to enhance the participation and achievement in sport.
The Principal and Leadership Team agreed a long term school improvement plan devised by subject leaders to guide the use of funds and to ensure value for money.
