Several years ago, the Government announced it was going to provide funding for school to develop P.E and Sport. This is known as the Primary School Sport Premium. The great news is that the government has recently doubled the amount that it is providing to primary school from September 2017 (sometimes referred to as the 'Sugar Tax').
Every state-funded school in the country with primary-aged children will now receive two payments throughout the financial year amounting to £16 000 with an additional sum of £10 per pupil. This means that for the financial year April 2019 to March 2020, our school will receive £18 300. This will certainly open up more fantastic opportunities for our children to help them develop their skills in PE and become more focused on sport.
At Meadowhead, we are very proud of what we already do during lessons and the wide range of extra –curricular clubs we provide for our children. We believe that P.E. and sport not only help with the physical development of children but also makes a significant contribution to their well-being and enjoyment of school.
By using the Sport's Premium to provide sustainable opportunities, we want to make our P.E. and Sport provision in and out of school hours even better in the future.
