What is Sports Premium?
The government is providing additional funding of 150million per annum for academic years 2014-15 and 2015-16 to improve provision of Physical education and sport in Primary schools. This funding, provided jointly by the Department of Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport will be allocated to headteachers.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport on schools.
Purpose of Fundingâ€‹
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will also have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding might include:
Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE
Supporting and engaging the least active children through new or additional Change4Life clubs
Paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
Running sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games
Buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and Sport
Providing places for pupils in after school sports clubs and holiday clubs
Pooling the additional funding of that with other schools
