Primary School Sports funding has helped us to increase participation and enjoyment in PE and Sports – to help our children live fulfilled and healthy lives!
Primary Sport Premium
At Winton Primary, we recognise the contribution of PE and sport to the health and wellbeing of our pupils. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
Our Primary Sport Premium enables us to continually develop and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver and sustain quality, in-house PE sessions.
The government has provided funding of £150 million per annum for primary school sport. The funding has being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport; money has gone directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school has received £8,000 per annum plus an extra £5 per eligible pupil each year.
Recently the government have committed to funding the Primary Sport Premium up until 2020 – an investment worth £750 million.
