School Sports Funding

The Funding

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years to 2013-20 to improve provision of Physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding -provided jointly by the department of 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; however, schools will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Please read our 2015-16  Sports Premium Funding report to find out how Bagshot uses this funding.

2016-17 Intentions

  • With several teachers new to our school we will be looking to extend their individual expertise in PE and will again be inviting coaches to work with the children to provide opportunities for participation in sport through focussed after school sports clubs.
  • We strive to continually improve our range of PE equipment and replace certain larger items.
  • We also want to look at other ways of delivering PE –using our own expertise to develop clubs for the children which in turn will enable them to take part in inter-school competitions.
