Sports Premium

In September 2013, the new sport premium was introduced to every primary school with the aim of improving the quality of PE and school sport provision and the Government has committed to provide the grant until 2020 and this autumn has increased the amount of funding each school receives. 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 head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Learning, achievement and progress for all children is an important part of our commitment to the use of our Physical Education Sport Premium grant. We intend for all of our pupils to take part and have as many opportunities as possible this year to enjoy sport and develop their skills.
