Financial Year                         Amount of Sports Premium Funding

2019 – 2020                                 £17,170


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 the teacher.


The funding is to be extended to 2020, which will allow us to continue to develop sports provision within school and to help us increase children’s participation in sporting activities.
