PE & Sports funding
The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2016/17 and 2017/18 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. This will see money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school will receive £8,500 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year for the next two years. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
To find out further information on how the money will be used at Mortimer St John’s please click on the links below.
Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals, those Looked After by the Local Authority and children of armed service personnel. The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress, raise attainment and support the pupils in the participation of activities in the wider curriculum.
The pupil premium is allocated to schools to decide how the additional funding should be spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils.
All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received, how this is being allocated and the impact of any additional support or provision.
