Sports Funding

PE & SPORT GRANT

The Government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in schools.  This funding, provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, will be allocated to primary school headteachers.  This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

We hope the grant will enable more children to participate in after school sports and that children will have the opportunity to participate in a wider range of sporting activities.

In Academic Year 2015/2016 our Sports Grant helped to fund:

  • Subscription to our local sports partnership to enable us to participate in a range of inter-school competitions and events.
  • Employment of external sports coaches to provide challenging sports opportunities for gifted and talented children.
  • Transport costs of the sports partnership events.
  • Provision of school sports clubs at no cost to parents.
  • Employment of specialist PE teachers or qualified coaches to work alongside teachers in lessons to increase their subject knowledge and confidence in PE.
  • Provision of high quality sports equipment.
  • Transport and staffing to enable groups of children (e.g. gifted and talented) to access high quality sports provision.
  • Swimming provision in school
  • Gymnastics coach to upskill staff expertise.
