P.E. and Sports Premium



Primary Sports Funding 2018

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2018 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is being allocated to primary school headteachers.  This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

How much do we get?

We received £15,000 this year. At Newtons we have employed a permanent part time specialist P.E. teacher (0.4) in order to continue to improve PE provision and raise achievement for all pupils in sport. She takes every class in Yr 1-6 on a weekly basis, thus providing INSET for staff. She also ensures that we participate in district competitions and tournaments through membership of the Sports Collective.  We use the Sports Premium Funding to pay for the School Partnership Collective. This is how we propose to continue to use this funding in the future as we can see the difference it is making to our children's P.E education and opportunities offered to them.   

At Newtons, we have always been committed to providing children with excellent sporting provision. We are delighted to have received the Gold School Games Kitemark Award to recognise our achievements in promoting physical activities. With the added funding, we aim to build on this further, ensuring that each child experiences the benefits.
