PE and Sport Funding

Page title

Sports Premium Funding

The Government is providing ‘new, substantial primary school sport funding’ to the value of £150 million per annum. This 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 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 within schools.

Funding for schools is calculated by the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) in the annual schools census.

All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil

How will the funding be spent?

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.

At Newport Primary School we are using the funding to improve the quality of teaching in P.E and promote physical activity in and out of school.
