Following the success of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games, the Government provides an additional £150 million per annum (provided jointly by the Departments for Education; Health; and Culture, Media and Sport), and this additional funding is ring-fenced to be spent to improve the provision of physical education and sport in Primary Schools. Schools have the freedom to choose how they do this. All state-maintained schools, academies, middle schools, special schools and pupil referral units which have primary aged pupils will receive this funding.
The Sports Premium is used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of our pupils, and to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
Schools receive sports premium funding based on the number of pupils in Years 1-6. As there are currently no pupils in Years 1-6 at Boorley Park Primary School, we do not currently qualify for the funding.
