Blakedown Church of England Primary School

Sport Premium

In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for PE and sport.  This funding is allocated to all maintained and state-funded primary schools.  Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding which should improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.  The Sport Premium is made up of a lump sum of £16,000 plus a premium of £10 per pupil.  Blakedown CE Primary will receive approximately £17,621.  The attached report demonstrates the key actions taken across the year, expenditure and impact on the pupils.
