Sports premium

Primary schools receive specific funding from the government to improve physical education (PE) and sport.  The number of pupils on roll determines the total fund a school receives. The school decides how to use it to best improve provision in this subject.

Possible uses for funding could include:

  • hiring qualified sports coaches to work with teachers in PE
  • engaging the least active children through new or additional Change4life clubs
  • paying for additional training for teachers in PE and sport
  • providing cover to release teachers for this training
  • running sports competitions or increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games Mark
  • buying quality assured sports training materials
  • providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs and holiday clubs
  • pooling the additional funding with that of other local schools 

Our Sports Premium report shows how we used the funds in the last academic year and how we assess its impact.
