The Government is providing funding to support the delivery of PE in and sports in Primary Schools through the “Sports Premium”
This funding has been ring fenced, and will be allocated to Primary Schools across England providing them dedicated resources to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Primary Schools will be able to determine what they believe to be the most appropriate use of the funding.
The funding amount schools receive is based upon the number of children of Primary School age the school has. The sports premium is to be used to increase the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision while increase participation in Sport.
Allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals at any point in the last 6 years, those children looked after by the local authority and the children of armed service personnel.
