Sports Premium funding 2017-2018
What is the Sports Premium?
In 2013, the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport announced new funding of £150 million to support the delivery of PE and school sport. Funding is being allocated to all state-maintained secondary, primary, middle and special schools (including non-maintained special schools), academies and pupil referral units with primary aged pupils. The PE grant is £8000 preschool plus £5 per primary pupil, or £500 per pupil for schools with 16 less primary children.
Funding for 2017 to 2018
This year schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive an extra £1,000 per pupil. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
Purpose of the funding?
All schools have to spend the Sports Funding on improving their provision of physical education and school sport but there is freedom to choose how we do it. At Queenswell junior School we believe that our children require an innovative and varied PE curriculum with extra-curricular opportunities.
Queenswell Junior School acknowledges the importance of physical activity and we are committed in providing our children with healthy active lifestyles.
- Ensuring that teaching and learning is good or better.
