Sports Grant

In 2013/2014 the Government introduced the ‘PE and Sports Premium’ funding to schools. The PE and sport premium is designed to help schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. Following the success of this grant, in 2017/2018 the Government increased the level of funding, determined by the number of pupils on roll.

The Government have spent over £450 million over the last 3 academic years on Sports Funding.

 

How has the Sports Grant been spent?

Whilst schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, we are free to choose the best way of using the money.

At Harden Primary we have used the funding to:

  • hire qualified sports coaches to teach PE lessons
  • provide existing staff with teaching resources to help them teach PE and sport
  • extend our after school activity clubs
  • participate in local sport competitions
  • purchase PE equipment
