What is Sports Premium?
The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide a primary school sport fund.
This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and ensures money goes directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
The purpose of the funding is that schools will have to spend the sport funding in improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Funding for schools will be calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual census in January.
How is it spent?
Schools will be held to account for how they spend the sport funding.
This funding will cover a number of areas of the subject such: professional coaching, competitions, equipment and staff professional development.
