What is Primary Physical Education and Sports Premium Funding?
For the past five academic years, the Government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum, in order to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. In 2017 the Government are providing £300 million per annum. The money goes directly to Primary Headteachers, with each school receiving £16,000 plus an extra £10 per child from Year 1-6.
How much funding is available?
During the 2017 to 2018 academic year, Bulford St Leonard’s Primary will receive £17,800. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
At Bulford St Leonard’s Primary School our aim is to use the Sports Premium Funding to improve the teaching of physical education and to provide a wide range of opportunities for children to be active and develop a lifelong love of physical activity. We also aim to use the funding in a sustainable manner so that it continues to benefit children in years to come and has a lasting legacy.
