Sports Premium

What is the Sports Premium?

The Government has provided PE and Sports funding since 2013 and plans to continue this for the next few years. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and the money goes directly to primary school Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

 

Purpose of funding

Schools are required to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Possible uses for the funding include:

  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE

  • new or additional Change4Life sport clubs

  • paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport

  • providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport

  • running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games

  • buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport

  • providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs

 

Allocation for 2017 - 2018
