Sport Premium – 2017-18  report and 2018-19 allocation

1. In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.

2. Funding will be allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils, including: primary, middle, special and non-maintained special schools, academies and pupil referral units from 1 September 2013. A typical primary school received about £9,250 and then around £16000 since 2017.

3. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

(Ofsted Inspecting primary school PE and school sport: new funding September 2013)

We received about £16000 for 2017-18 and used this towards Sports coaching on 3 afternoons a week which paid for Damian Sweeney on 3 afternoons a week, climbing activities at Grip and Go and dry ski slope sessions at Haslingden.

The funding for 2018-19 academic year has remained in place for Primary schools and will again amount to approx. £16000. From September 2018 we will use the Sports premium funding for sports coaching four afternoons a week with some of the remaining funding used to pay towards dry ski slope sessions.
