What is Sports Premium?
The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see the money going directly to primary school Head Teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and P.E. for all their children.
The school will receive £8000 plus a premium of £5 per child each year. The money can only be spent on sport and P.E. provision in schools. The money will be used so that all children benefit regardless of their sporting ability.
Purpose of the funding
All schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of P.E. and sport, but there is freedom to choose how to do it. At Nathaniel Newton Infant School we recognise the contribution of P.E. to the health and well-being of the children. In addition, we believe that an innovative and varied P.E. curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.
