What is the Sports Premium?
The government is providing all schools with additional funding to improve the provision of Physical Education (PE) and Sport in schools. This funding is ring-fenced which means it can only be used for its specified purpose.
How are we using the Sports Premium?
As part of our drive to improve PE we aim to ensure that the Sports Premium is spent effectively to support teachers so that there is increased participation in PE and school sport so that all pupils develop a healthy lifestyle and reach the performance levels they are capable of. Sport is an important part of our school curriculum and excellence and enjoyment in sport participation, alongside strong cultural opportunities, supports our pupil’s academic progress, social skills and well being.
For 2016/17 Springwell Learning Community will receive an allocation of £9,635.
