The government has provided £450 million between 2013 to 2018 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 is anticipated to receive £16,000 plus an extra £10 per pupil for this academic year.
At Larkswood we received £21,500 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.
In 2019-2020 we will receive £21,680. Please use the link below to see how we are planning to use this funding.
