Sports Funding

SPORTS PREMIUM

Background

Since 2013 the Government has provided additional funding to improve the provision of PE and sport in primary schools. In the academic year 2020-21, £320 million is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. The money is ring-fenced and schools are held to account for how they spend it. We have therefore included details about our most recent spending for your information.  Funding for schools is calculated by reference to the number of primary-aged pupils in the school. In 2019-20, we were awarded approximately £19,800 and we expect a similar figure in 2020-21.
