PE and Sports Premium Funding
Government PE and Sports Premium Funding
The school has been in receipt of additional government funding specified as 'PE and Sports Premium' since its introduction in September 2013. The Government outlined that schools will continue to receive this funding until 2020 with each school in England receiving £16,000 plus £10 per child on roll from year 1 to 6. Schools are free to spend the PE and Sports Premium as they see fit since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for all the pupils within their responsibility. This extra funding must be spent on Physical Education and School Sport. As a school we will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding and from April 2014 we have been required to publish online information regarding how we have used the Sports Premium and the impact it has made. To meet this requirement the following information has been produced which sets out the amount of PE and Sports Premium we will receive and how we intend to use it. We aim to utilise this extra funding to improve all aspects of Physical Activity. These include: maximising pupil progress, increasing participation in sport, professional development of staff and to help all our pupils to develop healthy lifestyles and positive attitudes towards Physical Education.
