What is the Sports Premium?
The Government is providing funding to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Department 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 sport and PE for all their children.
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.
Funding at St Peter’s
For the academic year 2016/17 the school was allocated £9,675
We are very proud to say that in our most recent Ofsted report it was recognised that:
‘Sports funding has been used wisely to offer a greater variety of activities in which pupils can participate, to develop teachers’ coaching skills and to increase the numbers of pupils who now take part in sports activities.’ Ofsted report, June 2016.
The 2017-18 Sports Premium Grant is £19,140 and our use of the funding and its impact can be found below:
