The Sports Premium is dedicated funding from central government that is allocated to improving the quality of sport and PE for primary school pupils in Years 1-6.

  • Funding Teachers’ professional development in sport and PE
  • Providing additional PE coaching from trained professionals
  • Buying resources for PE and sport
  • Providing coaching, entry and travel to sports tournaments and competitions
  • Providing places for pupils in lunchtime or after school sports clubs
