 Sports Premium Funding

2017-18

What is it and how are we spending it?

The Sport Premium is an amount of money which is allocated to schools by the government in order to improve the quality of sport and PE for all their children. It is also for improving the health and wellbeing of primary children. The amount of funding that school receives is based on the number of children of primary age in that school. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools such as hiring sports coaches to work with teacher.

 

After recent announcements, the funding is likely to be in place extended until 2020, which will allow us to continue to develop sports provision within school and to help us increase children’s participation in sporting activities.

 

Proposed Expenditure

Ryecroft Infant School is committed to ensuing that the sports premium is used to increase the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. We want to increase the participation in PE and promote healthy and active lifestyles. It is for schools to decide how the Sports Premium is spent and we are dedicated to making sure that this is spent effectively.
