PE & SPORTS PREMIUM FUNDING
PE and Sport Premium
In March 2013, the government announced that it was to provide additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools in England – The Primary PE and Sport Premium.
This funding is allocated to primary school headteachers. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
· In the Autumn Statement 2013, the then Chancellor, George Osbourne announced an additional year’s £150m extended funding, taking the total investment to the end of the 2016 academic year.
· On 6th February 2014 the then Prime Minister, David Cameron committed to continue the funding for the Primary PE and Sport Premium until 2020.
· On 24th October 2017, the Department for Education published new guidance on the doubled Primary PE and Sport Premium grant.
Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1,000 per pupil.
Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.

70% of the children in Year 6 in 2020-21 are able to swim 25m on their fronts and backs and 88% of the children have passed their basic survival test.
In 2017/18 academic year, we began the process of migrating swimming to an earlier year group. The Year 5 children have had access to swimming provision in the Spring and Summer terms. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been unable to migrate swimming down further year groups. In the academic year 2021-22 our Year 6 cohort, who have missed swimming due to the pandemic, will be undertaking at least two terms of swimming as part of the PE curriculum.
