PE and Sport PREMIUM 2017-2018
The PE and Sport Premium is funding provided to schools in addition to main school funding. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools.
The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2016 to 2017 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
For Grove Primary School and Nursery has equated to £16, 000 plus an additional £10 per pupil from year 1 to year 6.
It is for schools to decide how the PE and Sport Premium is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made to enhance the provision for PE in school. Schools are to be held accountable for how they have used the additional funding.
