Sports Premium

What is the PE and Sports Premium Grant?

The Education Funding Agency currently provides additional funding to each school to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - is ring-fenced for provision of PE and sport.

Birdham CE Primary School PE and Sports Grant

Funding for schools is based on the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11), as recorded in the annual schools census in January each year. For last academic year Birdham CE Primary School received £8605.

We have used this funding previously to:

• hire specialist PE teachers and qualified sports coaches to work with primary teachers when teaching PE

• support and engage the least active children in new or additional clubs

• pay for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport

• provide cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport

• run sport competitions, or increasing pupils’ participation in the School Games

• organise and plan our Birdham Triathlon

• pool the additional funding with that of other local schools for inter school events

• replace key parts for our ageing swimming pool to ensure we can maximise swimming time
