What is Sport Premium?
The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games was an opportunity to inspire the nation to enjoy a memorable cultural and sporting experience. The government is determined to secure a significant and lasting legacy from the games and to develop children’s enjoyment of sport and physical activity from an early age. The Government recognises the impact and importance of this funding and this has therefore been doubled in 2017-18. Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.
What is the purpose of the grant?
As outlined by The Department of Education this funding must be used to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, so that they develop a healthy lifestyle.
Accountability Ofsted inspectors will consider "How well the school uses its Sports Grant to improve the quality and breadth of its PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performances they are capable of."
