Through a new ‘Sport Premium’ the Government is providing £150 million in each of the next two years to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools.
This funding will be ring fenced, and will be allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Whilst primary schools will be able to determine what they believe to be the most appropriate use of this funding, it is important to recognise that groups of schools will also be free to ‘pool’ their Sports Premium funding to ensure the greatest possible impact. Funding will be allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism – a typical primary school with 250 pupils will receive around £9,250 each year.
