Sport Premium


For the past two years there has been an additional sum of money available to primary schools to develop sport. The amount allocated is £8000 per school and £5 per pupil (Y1-Y6). For St Michael's this was an allocation of £10,700 in 2016-17, with a similar  amount due in 2017-18


What the funding is for:

Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, but they are free to choose the best way of using the money.

For example, the funding can be used to:

  • hire specialist PE teachers
  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with teaching resources to help them teach PE and sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • run sport competitions
  • run sports activities with other schools
