Primary Sports Grant Funding 2017 - 18

The government is continuing to provide additional funding to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools for the 2017/2018 academic year. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

 

The Grant is made up of two parts: a lump sum of £8000 per annum (which was doubled for this financial year) plus an additional sum of £5 per pupil (this was again doubled to £10 during this financial year). The pupil element is based on the numbers of pupils on roll on the day of the school census. Based on the last census (407 pupils) the allocation is expected to be £10,035 for this academic year. The 2017/2018 plan was based on expected funding before the confirmation of the increase during this financial year.

 

As in previous years the Grant will be used to extend, support and enhance our school’s PE provision and this year the main focus will be on increased participation in sporting events across the city and improved after school provision.

 

We were invited to submit a bid to FA/Sport England for a Junior AWP and changing rooms costing approx. £110k. We were short listed to be one of the 8 pilot schools across the UK in January this year so are confident that we will be successful when the scheme is rolled out later this year.
