Sport Premium

Sport Premium

In 2013, the government announced that they would be spending £450 million over the next three academic years to help fund primary school sport, this is called the School Sport Premium. The PE and Sport Premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. 

Schools have the freedom to spend the money however they choose, but this must be towards improving their provision of PE and Sport to give children the opportunity to develop a healthy lifestyle.
