Sport Premium Funding
What is the Sports Premium?
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. 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.
As of 2017-18, the sport Premium has doubled and Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. Our total funding for the 2017/18 is £21,450
The funding must be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sports provision. Below is a link to our full report on how we plan to spend this year’s allocation, how the grant has been spent in previous years and the effect of this expenditure on the educational attainment of those pupils for whom the funding was allocated.
How are we using the funding to benefit our children?
At Oasis Academy Temple we have allocated the funding in a number of ways to benefit as many of our children as possible:
- Professional development opportunities for PE co-ordinator
- Implementation of PE curriculum and resources
