WHAT IS ‘PE AND SPORT PREMIUM’ FUNDING?
Primary PE and Sport Premium is an initiative that aims to help increase and improve the PE and sporting opportunities for children. It was first provided in the 2013/14 academic year and the current government has pledged to continue this funding until 2020. Due to Covid and National Lockdowns, this has been extended to 2021.
PE and Sport Premium funding is provided jointly by the Department for Education, the Department for Health and Culture and the Department for Media and Sport. It has been allocated to primary school headteachers and is ring-fenced, meaning that it can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.
The Government believes that headteachers and school leaders should decide how to use the funding for PE and Sports in school. They are held accountable for the decisions they make through:
Each school will now receive £16,000 plus an extra £10 per pupil each year- here at St Nicholas that means around £17,210 a year. We receive our allocation from the local authority in 2 separate payments: 7/12 on the 31st October and the final 5/12 of the funding on the 30th April. The money can only be spent on Sport and PE provision in schools. At St. Nicholas, we believe it is important to be open and transparent about how we are utilising this funding and would welcome any comments or feedback you have. We aim to use the funding effectively to ensure that standards of learning and achievement in PE and Sports are raised, with all children, regardless of their background, engaging in physical activity as part of the curriculum and extra-curricular provision.
We are fortunate to have the support of the Schools Sports Partnership (based at The Deanes School Sports College) and the documents below show details of the package bought into and provided by the SSP. In addition various resources have been purchased by the school to support Sports provision for the children.
