Sports Premium funding for Physical Education and School Sport was announced by the Government in March 2013.
A substantial sum of money is being allocated to schools and is running from September 2013 to August 2020. This ‘ring-fenced’ funding – only to be spent on PE and Sport – goes directly to schools who will decide how to use this money to improve the quality of PE provision in their school.
This initiative has been devised to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport across primary schools. It is intended that this funding will promote healthy lifestyle choices and give children the opportunities to reach the performance levels they are capable of.
At Mount Street Academy, PE and sport plays a vital role in achieving our vision: ‘Creating a Haven in which children flourish’. We believe children should be provided with the opportunity to ‘flourish’ in every area of their learning, including physically.
Please see attached statement on the use and impact of the Sports Premium at Mount Street Academy across 2017/18 and how we intend to use our Sport Premium Grant in 2018/19.
