Sports Premium



The Government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/2014 and 2014/2015 to provide new, substantial primary school sports funding in order to improve the provision of Physical Education and sport in primary schools. This funding is jointly provided by the Depts. For Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to schools to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. All state maintained schools, academies, middle schools, special schools and pupil referral schools which have primary aged pupils (as reported in the 2014 schools census) will receive funding.


This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupil’s progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish online information about how we have used the additional funding. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Churnet View Middle School.
