Primary PE and Sport Premium Funding

What is the Primary PE and Sports Premium?

The government has provided funding of £150 million per annum since the 2013/14 academic year to provide the Primary PE and Sports Premium. The 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 Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

In 2016-17, our academy will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil in years one and two.   The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. The money will be used so that all children benefit regardless of their sporting ability. The funding is paid based on the number of pupils eligible in the January prior to that academic year and as we had no eligible pupils in January 2014, we did not receive any funding in 2014-15.  However, as a school we recognise the importance of high quality physical education and sport and we therefore made a significant investment and commitment to high quality provision. For 2015-16 we received £8,145 and anticipate we will receive £8,310 in 2016-17 and will continue to spend above our grant allocation in order to provide our high quality provision.
