PE and Sports Premium

What is the Sports Premium?


In March 2013 the government announced it was to provide additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 / 2014 and 2014 / 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools in England.  This is known as PE & Sport Premium Funding.   Since then the government has committed to continue further funding until 2020.



Purpose of the funding

This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. The funding is ring-fenced and, therefore, can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.


Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.


Our Vision for PE

At Stainton CE Primary School we are fully committed to ensuring that our children are fit, healthy and active learners.


We aspire to be a school that offers every child the opportunity to fulfil their absolute potential and we realise the vital role that sports and outdoor learning needs to play in realising those goals. want our children to make healthy choices, to enjoy physical activity now and to continue to engage in active lifestyles in their futures.


Children learn to appreciate the benefit of taking part in regular activities / exercise whilst embodying our core values of collaboration and fair play.


The Sports Premium funding we receive will be spent in a number of ways with the ultimate intention of providing high quality PE provision for all.
