The Use and Impact of Sports Premium

What is the Sports Premium?

The government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013 to 2016 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. 

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

Our allocation for this current academic year 16/17 is: 

Instalment Period Covered Financial Year Amount (£)
1 September 2016- March 2017 2016/17 £4,830
2 April to August 2017 2017/18 £3,450
Total for the academic year 2016/2017 £8,280

How do we intend to use the Sports Premium ?

At Swinefleet Primary School we are currently developing our Sports Premium plan to raise standards and participation levels in PE throughout the school, with the aim of:

•. Raise standards in PE across the school through high quality teaching,

•. Raise participation levels of pupils taking part in a competitive sporting activity or sports club.

We will be following the guidelines for how to spend this money, including:
