Sports Premium Funding
In the academic year 2013-14, the Government announced that they would be providing additional funding to improve the provision of P.E. and sport in primary schools. In February, 2014, Prime Minister, David Cameron committed to continue providing this funding to primary schools until 2020.
Payment for sports premium is as follows: 'Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.' Hunton CEP School therefore receives £16,950 for the academic year 2017/18 academic year.
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of P.E. and sport they offer.
