What is the Sports Premium?
The Government is providing sports funding for primary schools of £450 million over the three academic years 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17. This 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 head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. At St Andrew’s Methodist Primary School, this funding will equate to approximately £9000 per year.
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.
