Sports Premium Funding

The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new and substantial primary school sports funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to primary school Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per child each year for the next two years - here at Elm Academy that will mean approximately £9500 a year.

Purpose of funding

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

How we will use the Sport Premium money:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE (Mr Beck)
  • Paying for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport
  • Running sport competitions, or increasing pupils' participation in the School Games
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules of materials for PE and sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sports clubs

At Elm Academy, we recognise the significant contribution of PE to the health and well-being of all children. In addition, we believe that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.
