In March 2013 the Government announced that it would provide additional funding to primary schools to support the improvement of provision of PE and sport. The funding, allocated to headteachers in primary schools is ringfenced and can only be spent on PE and sport in primary schools. The headteacher and governors are accountable for the spending of the funding.
The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport. It is to benefit primary-aged pupils and to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
Funding for academic year
Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1000 per pupil. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil. For our school this means approximately £18,000 per year.
Details of how we have used this money and how it has made a difference to our school and our pupils are available by clicking on the links below.
