Sport Funding

The Government is providing £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 to provide new funding for primary school sport.

Sports Premium

The funding is jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture and Media and Sport.

Money is paid directly to schools, for schools to s pend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school receives £8000 plus an additional £5 per pupils each year. This means at Albion we receive around £9,000 a year. Schools must spend the sports funding on improving their provision for PE and sport, whilst having the freedom to decide how they do this.
