What is the Sports Premium?
The government is providing over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the 3 academic years 2013 to 14, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016. The Prime Minister has also recently committed to continuing this funding until 2020. 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 Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:
Henbury View First School has received £8615 for the year 2016/2017
Since September 2013, Ofsted Inspections report on PE and sport provision and on how schools spend their additional funding.
