Sport Premium

What is Sports Premium?

The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide new and substantial primary

school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Department of Education, Health and

Culture, Media and Sport, and see money going directly to Primary School Head Teachers to spend on

improving the quality of Sport and PE for all their children. Each school will receive £8,000 plus an

extra £5 per pupil each year for the next two years to be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

Purpose of Funding

 

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 of the funding

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when
  • teaching PE
  • New or additional sports clubs
  • Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/Sport
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/Sport
  • Running sports competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or material for PE/Sport
  •  

At St Thomas More the governors agree that the money must be used so that all children benefit

regardless of their sporting ability. We will use our Sports Funding Allocation to continue to place a very

high priority on our PE provision. We have invested in full time Specialist Teacher provision.
