What is the Sports Premium?
The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year for the next two years - here at Great Missenden CoE Combined School that will approximately £9,000 a year. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
Recently the government have committed to funding the primary school Sports Premium up until 2020 - an investment worth £750 million.
