PE & Sports Funding 2016-2017

What is it?

In the legacy of the British Olympic Games the Government are investing money to improve physical education and sport in primary schools. Schools can choose how they spend the funding within certain criteria.

How much will we receive?

Schools with greater than 17 pupils will receive £8000 plus £5.00 per pupil.  Wilby CEVC Primary School received £8355 in 2015-2016 and £8285 + £1735 (remaining in budget from the previous year)=10,040 in 2016-17. In 2016-17 we will receive £8305 in sports funding.

Spending the money – What can we do?

Schools can choose how they use the funding, for example to:

  • Hire specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work with children and teachers during PE lessons.
  • Support and involve the least active children by running after-school sports clubs and holiday clubs.
  • Provide resources and training courses in PE and sport for teachers.
  • Run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the school games and competitions.
  • Run sports activities with other schools.
  • Provide a wider variety of sporting experiences to encourage a wider group of children to become involved in sport.
