Primary PE and Sport Premium
The Government give schools funding for physical education (PE) and school sport. Through what is known as a ‘Sport Premium’ the Government has provided funding to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools.
This funding will be ring fenced, and will be allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Funding will be allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism. The formula will reference the number of primary-aged pupils (i.e. children between the ages of 5 and 11). At St Joseph’s we are using our funding to enhance PE and Sport via investment in new resources, being part of Knowsley School Sports Partnership and also through the recruitment of a part time PE teacher (Mrs Wilson).
