What is the Sports Premium?
The Government provides funding to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all of their children.
The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
What is the funding for?
Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding could be:
- hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
- new or addition Change4Life sports clubs
- paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
- providing cover to release primary teachers for CPD in development in PE/sport
- running sports competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
- buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
- providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs
