What is Sports Premium?

Purpose of the funding
Schools must append the sports funding to improve the quality and breadth of the provision for PE and school sports activities. The sports funding is designed to enrich children’s experience in sport whilst developing healthy active lifestyles; raising levels of attainment and enabling pupils to reach the levels of performance they are capable of. Funding can be used in a range of ways, for example, including additional sport clubs, equipment to support PE and hiring specialist P.E teachers/qualified sport coaches.
