Sports Premium

The PE and Sport Premium is funding provided to schools in addition to main school funding. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.

Schools receive PE and Sport Premium funding based on the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6.  Funding for schools is calculated by reference to the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11), as recorded in the annual schools census each January.

It is for schools to decide how the PE and Sport funding is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made to enhance the provision for PE in school. Schools are to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding, ensuring additional and sustainable improvements are made to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

The links below show how the funding was spent last academic year and how we plan to spend the funding this year.

The Sports Premium Funding is to continue for the coming year, and will be increased due to the government’s Sugar Tax. This was very recently confirmed.

To ensure we use Sports Premium Funding effectively, we will:

  1. Develop staff CPD through the focused PECS programme. Each staff member will have this opportunity for at least 6 weeks across the year.
  2. Enable a wide provision of after-school sports clubs to be offered and continue participation in a range of inter school competitions.
  3. Increase lunch time sports provision.
