Primary Sport Grant Funding 2016 - 17 - Action Plan

Primary Sport Grant Funding 2016/2017

The government is continuing to provide additional funding to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools for the 2016/2017 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 plus an additional sum of £5 per pupil. The pupil element is based on the numbers of pupils on roll on the day of the school census. Based on the last census (409 pupils) the allocation is expected to be £10,050 for this academic 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.
