In the 2013/2014 academic year, schools were awarded a new Government PE & Sports Premium. The PE and sport premium is designed to help schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils.
The Government are spending over £450 million on this funding over the 3 academic years, 2013/2014, 2014/15 & 2015/16.
How has the 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
