What is Sports Premium?
Since 2013 the government have provided additional funding to improve provision in PE and sport in primary schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport.
The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
Schools will receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil, therefore for the academic year 2018/19 St Cross will receive £17,760. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
