In March 2013 the government announced that it was to provide additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools in England - The Primary PE & Sport Premium. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - is allocated to primary school Headteachers. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. In the Autumn Statement 2013, the Chancellor, George Osbourne announced an additional year's £150m extended funding, taking the total investment to the end of the 2016 academic year. On 6th February 2014 the Prime Minister, David Cameron committed to continue the funding for the Primary PE & Sport Premium until 2020.
Below you will find the reports on how we spent the Sports Premium funding and the impact this had on improving the quality of PE and Sport at Farsley Springbank for all children.
We are committed to spending the funding in ways that have a long lasting and sustainable impact on all our pupils and staff. We aim that all teachers will develop skills and confidence to deliver good quality PE teaching. We aim to ensure that all children are empowered with knowledge, skills and understanding about how to lead a healthy life and develop a love of sport and physical activity.
