Sports Premium Funding £8710


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.   

At Great Waldingfield CEVC Primary School the total amount of Sports Premium funding allocated for 2016-17 (financial year April-March) is £8710. (£8000 plus an additional payment of £5 per pupil.)
