Sports Premium Funding
What is the Sports Premium?
The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new and substantial primary school sports funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to primary school Head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year for the next two years. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. The money will be used so that all children benefit regardless of their sporting ability.
Purpose of the Funding
All schools have to spend the sports funding on improving their provision of PE and sports but there is freedom to choose how we do it. At Kingfisher Hall Primary Academy we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. In addition, we believe that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.
Kingfisher Hall Primary Academy received £8,300 Sports Premium Funding for the academic year 2013-14.
