PE & Sports Premium Funding 2017-2018

 

What is the PE & Sports Premium?

The government originally provided £150 million per annum to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. We are delighted that this funding is due to continue in the 2017-2018 academic year and beyond.

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 PE & Sport for all their children.

Each school receives £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil - here at Boxford CEVC Primary School, that will mean close to £9,000 a year. The money can only be spent on PE and sport provision in schools.

Purpose of the funding

Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Possible uses of the funding include:

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • run sport competitions
  • increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
  • run sports activities with other schools

In the 2017-2018 financial year, we expect to receive £8917 in PE & Sports Premium Funding.
