PE & Sports Premium
What is the Sports Premium?
The government is spending money on physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools and have extended this. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
Each school will receive £16,000 plus an extra £5.00 per pupil each year.
Purpose of the Funding
Schools can spend the sports funding on improving their provision of PE and sport; there is freedom to choose how to spend it. At Elham Church of England Primary School we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. In addition, we believe that a varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the attitudes and academic achievements of the children.
