PE Sport funding

What is PE Sport Funding?

In April 2013, the Government announced additional funding for physical education (PE) and sport in schools.

Purpose of Funding (taken from DfE website) Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. This means that you should use the premium to: 

Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers.

Make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

The PE and sport funding allocated to Idle CE (A) Primary School from 1st September 2020 for the academic year 2020- 2021 is £18770.
