What is the primary ‘Sport Premium’?
In April 2013 the Government announced that £150 million would be released to fund primary school physical education and sport as part of the ‘Olympic legacy’. It has been designed to help schools in a variety of ways. Through investment of this funding, we hope to develop the provision of PE and raise the profile of sport and PE throughout the whole school.
The Government has made available, to all schools, an annual sum of money that allows them to continue to develop sports provision within school and to help schools increase pupil participation in sporting activities. We recognise the contribution of PE to the health and wellbeing of our children. We also acknowledge that a broad, balanced, high quality curriculum and extra-curricular activities have a positive impact on concentration, attitude and achievement. This money presently equates to £16,000 per school per year plus an additional £10 per child.
