Sports Funding

The government have committed to £150 million worth of funding for primary school PE each year until 2020 through their Sports Premium fund. This money is ring fenced for spending on developing physical education, healthy living and school sport.

Purpose of the premium

The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2017 to 2018 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

Basis of allocation

Allocations for the academic year 2017 to 2018 are calculated using the number of pupils in years 1 to 6, as recorded in the January 2017 census, as follows:

  • schools with 17 or more pupils receive £16,000 plus £10 per pupil
  • schools with 16 or fewer pupils receive £1000 per pupil

This means Little Stanion Primary School receives around £17,600 to provide additional sporting provision to all children.

We commit to using this money to provide sporting opportunities to all pupils and to make a sustainable difference in the provision of sport at the school through staff training, resourcing and participation in competition.  

Little Stanion Primary School 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.

The effectiveness of the spending will be measured by the impact on the children and provisions of PE available to them, by looking at measureable numbers of participants in PE lessons and extra-curricular activities for example Level 1 and level 2 competitions.
