The Betty Layward Primary School Sports Funding 2019-2020
What is the Sports Premium?
The Department for Education (DfE) is spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the 3 academic years. The funding was first issued for the academic year 2013/2014 and it will continue over the academic years 2014/2015- 2019/2020. The funding will be allocated directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all pupils.
Purpose of funding
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision for PE and sport, but schools have been given the freedom to choose how they do this.
At Betty Layward we have decided to use our money to:
provide specialised coaches for various sports in PE curriculum lessons
increase pupils’ participation in sports and physical activities at lunchtimes, before school, after school
provide subsidised places for pupils in sports based after school clubs for our vulnerable pupils and gifted pupils
increase the variety of sports after school clubs on offer for all pupils
Our school allocation
Our school has been awarded £ 19, 470 for the academic year 2019 -2020 and we intend to use the funding as outlined be below.
