Sport Premium is a government funded payment aimed at improving and increasing the provision of PE in schools across the country in order to ‘encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles’ [DfE, gov.uk]. The amount of money paid, approximately £10,000, is based on the number of pupils in the school and it is ring-fenced, meaning it has to be spent solely on PE.
More About the Sports Premium
We are delighted to extend our contract with the local company PASS, set up by the co-ordinator of the Maidstone Sports Partnership as we know that his expertise, drive and energy, with the help of his team, has allowed us to deliver some of the above and, equally importantly, has provided training for teachers to enable them to become more confident in the delivery of day to day aspects of PE.
