In April 2013, the Government announced a special fund called the Sports Premium that would be provided to schools in order to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.
Funding is allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils. In 2022/2023 our Sports Premium allocation was £17,520
Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
Examples of how we are making effective use of PE and sport funding at St Mary’s include:
