Sports Grant Premium

Micheldever CE Primary School




Our focus is on the following three areas:





What is Sports Premium?

The Government announced additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. It is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

Ofsted has strengthened its coverage of sport within the Inspectors’ Handbook and supporting guidance, so that schools and inspectors are clear about how sport will be assessed in future as part of the overall provision offered by the school. Inspectors will consider:

“How well the school uses its Sports Premium to improve the quality and breadth of its PE and sporting provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of”

Specifically the Ofsted guidance for Inspectors states that Inspectors should consider the impact of the new primary school sport funding on pupils’ lifestyles and physical wellbeing.

How much does our school receive?

Each school receives £8000 plus £5 per pupil. An increase in funding from the Government to develop sport and health and wellbeing has been allocated also. For this academic year our school expects to receive £16, 964

How is our PE and Sports Funding Grant spent?
