Information on Sports Premium
The government has announced that it is spending over £450 million on this funding over 3 academic years from 2013 - 2016 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. The government's vision is:
All pupils leading primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - must be spent in accordance with government guidelines to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE in school. The funding allocated for our school is £8000 for each year, plus £5 per pupil. This means that The Gateway will be allocated £9050 for this academic year.
