Sport Premium 18-19 Plan

Primary Sport Grant Funding Academic Year 2018/2019

The government is continuing to provide additional funding to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools for the 2018/2019 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 £16,000 per annum (double previous years) plus an additional sum of £10 per pupil (again double the amount for previous years).  The pupil element is based on the numbers of pupils on roll for each day of the academic year. Based on the school census data the allocation for the financial year is £19,490.

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 has been on increasing participation in sporting events across the city and improved after school provision.

Last year we were invited to submit a bid to FA/Sport England for a Junior AWP and changing rooms costing approx. £110k.  As part of the bid we were expected to make a contribution so earmarked some the additional funding. We were short listed to be one of the 8 pilot schools across the UK in January 2018, but unfortunately were not successful. However, we are confident that we will be successful when the scheme is rolled out so have carried the amount forward and have earmarked further funds from this year to enhance our contribution to any future bid.
