Overview of Sports Funding Spending 15.16

Sports Funding Statement 2016/17

What is the Sports Premium?

The government is providing funding of £150million per annum for the academic years 2013/4 and 2014/5 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being provided jointly 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 an dPE for all their children.

Each school will receive £8000 plus and extra £5 per pupil each year for the next 2 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 sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but there is freedom to choose how we do it. At Cranham we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our children. We also believe that providing an innovative and varied PE curriculum and a range of extra-curricular opportunities  will have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all pupils, as well as introducing them to life-long interests.
