School Sports Funding
The government provides additional funding to schools to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – has been allocated to primary school head teachers.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
Purpose of funding
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but schools have been given the freedom to choose how they do this. A list of possible uses has been suggested.

Teaching staff have received high quality CPD from the sports coach provided by Premier Sports. This has had a direct impact on the quality of teaching and learning in PE.
Children have had a wider provision of sports coaching which has led to a greater number of children accessing after school clubs especially in gymnastics.
All children across the school have had the experience of specific coaching in a variety of sports and skills.
