What is Sports Premium?
The Sports Premium is funding that the Government has provided to all schools in the United Kingdom to further improve the outcomes of sport in Primary Schools. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. This may include:
specialist PE teachers teaching the curriculum
qualified sports coaches working with teachers
providing higher level training for class teachers
purchasing resources to enable PE to be taught effectively
support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games
run sports activities with other schools.
