The Government provides additional funding of £150 million per annum to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding in order to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding is jointly provided by the Departments 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 units which have primary aged pupils (as reported in the 2014 school census) will receive the funding. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools.
Holy Trinity will be held accountable for how we use/have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Holy Trinity.
Funding for 2017 to 2018
Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1,000 per pupil.
Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.
We will publish the school level breakdown of funding for the academic year 2017 to 2018, including conditions of grant, in October 2017.
Once we have confirmed amounts we will provide details on this page.
