The government has provided £450 million over the last five academic years (2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16, 2016/17 and 2017/18) to primary schools to help them improve the quality and teaching of PE and to develop the sporting opportunities for extra-curricular activities and competitive sports for all children.
The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health, and Culture, Media and Sport and our school will receive an annual grant of £16,000 plus an extra £10 per pupil for this academic year.
At Lime Academy Watergall we will receive £19,170 in the academic year 2018-2019. Schools must spend the sports premium on improving and developing their provision of PE and sport, but have the flexibility to choose how they do this. Our planned expenditure can be found on the right hand side of this page.
