Primary School’s Sports Funding
What is the Sport’s Premium?
The Government is providing funding of 150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15, to provide quality primary Physical Education (PE) and school sport. Each school will receive £8,000 plus an additional £5 per pupil for the next two years – for Beech Street this will equate to approximately £9,000.
Provision in school
As a school we already provide high quality PE and sport, and our intention is that this funding will further enhance the existing provision in school.
The Governors agree that the funding must be used so that:
All children benefit regardless of sporting ability;
· All children have the opportunity to compete in competitions at some level;
· Children have increased access to PE and sporting after-school clubs;
· Staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development.
Updates relating to our provision for PE and sport will be provided throughout the school year through Beech Street Press, our school newsletter.
The impact of the funding will also be reported annually to parents and governors.
