Sports Premium Grant 2020/2021
What is Sports Premium Grant?
The Sports Premium Grant is additional funding from the Government to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.
The grant should be used to develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport activities that school already offer and build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years. It is also for improving the health and wellbeing of primary pupils.
How much is the Sports Premium Grant?
Allocations for the academic year 2018/19 were calculated using the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6, as recorded at the January 2018 Census as follows:
- Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 plus £10 per eligible pupil; and
- Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £1000 per eligible pupil.
At John Betts, we received £18,060 for the year 2018/19.
The use of the Sports Premium Grant is monitored and reviewed by Governors at their termly meetings.
