The Government is providing funding to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. 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 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 in schools.
Our estimated PE and Sports Premium funding for the academic year 2016-2017 is £11,285.
We will be spending the sport funding on improving the provision of PE and sport through hiring specialist qualified sports coaches to work alongside our teachers when teaching PE. We will also look to run additional health and fitness clubs both before and after school, targeting specific children.
The funding will also be used to increase our participation in the school games competitions and also introduce inter house competitions.
In addition to the Fencing club funded through the Sports Premium we will also be subsidising a range of new extra curricular opportunities, ensuring children in every year group have the opportunity to participate.
