Primary Sports Funding 2015-16


The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is being allocated to primary school headteachers.  This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.



Our priorities mean that the £8,710 funding for 2016-17 will:

- A new subject leader will be fully trained with regular CPD

-Working partnership set up with Progressive sports to enhance PE participation- A wider range of activities offered as part of the curriculum and after school clubs

- Half termly CPD for PE, based on identified needs

 - Develop sporting equipment to allow children to participate all year round
