Sports Premium

The dedicated primary PE and Sport Premium, which was announced in March 2013 and began the following September, goes directly to primary school headteachers so that they can decide how best to use it to provide sporting activities for pupils.

Funding for 2016 to 2017

Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £500 per pupil. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £8,000 and an additional payment of £5 per pupil. The breakdown of funding for the academic year 2016 to 2017, including conditions of grant, is available here.

For the year 2016/17, St Brigid’s school received £8,765 and is using the premium to:

  • up-skill teachers to improve the quality of sport lessons
  • invest in quality coaching – through Extended Services Provision
  • provide training for pupils to become Buddies
  • provide more opportunities for pupils to take part in inter-school competitions through our SSCo links
  • offer a variety of extra curricular clubs – including during breakfast club, lunchtime and after school
  • purchase new resources
  • introduce new and unusual sports to encourage more children to participate
