Sports funding money

 Sports Funding 2015-16.xlsx

The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This 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. 

 The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. OFSTED will play a significant role in ensuring that schools target this funding in areas which will lead to clear outcomes in raising standards and opportunities in PE and school sport for all children throughout the Primary Phase. 

All schools will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil for the next two academic years.

The total amount of money allocated to St Mary's CoE (Aided) primary school is £8,320.00.

As a staff, we have completed and audited based on the Youth Sport Trust self-evaluation tool. We used this to target spending over the next year to areas we wish to develop further.
