Prime Minister David Cameron has announced a renewed package of funding for PE and school sport. Through a new ‘Sport Premium’ the Government is providing £150 million in each of the next two years to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools.
This funding will be ring fenced, and will be allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Funding will be allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism – a primary school with 80 pupils will receive around £8,150 each year.
In order to ensure all young people have access to high quality PE, schools are required to publish details of their sporting provision on their websites. Below is our School Action Plan showing how we intend to utilise our funding across the school to improve our PE provision.
