Sports Grant

Primary School PE and School Sport

In April 2013, the Government announced a new initiative for Physical Education (PE) and Sport. The School Sport Premium is a fund allocated to every Primary School as a legacy of the London Olympic games. This was designed in order to promote a healthy lifestyle and improve the quality of PE and Sport within Primary schools.

Primary schools are given autonomy on the allocations of the funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. These areas include; increasing participation in PE and Sport, developing the quality of teaching within the subject, creating an inclusive whole school ethos in encouraging all pupils to live a healthy lifestyles and to reach the performance levels they are capable of.
