In September 2013, the new sport premium was introduced to every primary school with the aim of improving the quality of PE and school sport provision and in October 2017 the government announced they were doubling the funding that primary schools receive to improve the quality of their PE and sport provision from £160 million to £320 million. We are delighted that there is further investment in PE and sports and will use this additional funding to increase the opportunities available to our pupils to develop their skills and set good habits for life.
The £320 million PE and sport premium will continue for the 2020 to 2021 academic year. Individual school allocations will be confirmed by the Department for Education in due course (July 2020).
We are incredibly proud to announce that in July 2019, we were awarded with a Gold School Games Mark for our commitment and dedication to the development of sport across our school and into the community. The School Games Mark is a Government led award scheme launched in 2012, facilitated by the Youth Sport Trust to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community, and we are delighted to have been recognised for our success.
Learning, achievement and progress for all children is an important part of our commitment to the use of our Physical Education Sport Premium grant. We intend for all of our pupils to take part and have as many opportunities as possible this year to enjoy sport and develop their skills.
