The Government provides funding each year to schools for sports, this is called our sports premium funding. This funding is jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport.
The money allocated to our school is to be spent on improving the quality of our sport, physical activity and physical education (PE) for all our children. The sport funding can only be spent on this provision in our school. This funding must be used for the benefit of all our primary-aged pupils so that they develop healthy active lifestyles.
We have the freedom to choose how we do this, possible uses for the funding include:
· hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers
when teaching PE
· new or additional sport clubs paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
· providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport running
sports competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
· buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
