Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
Helping all primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sports activities they offer their pupils.
What is the Sports Funding? The National Picture
Sports funding was introduced by the Government in September 2013. It was designed to give additional money to support schools in developing Physical Education in Schools and build an ‘Olympic Legacy’. At Twickenham Primary Academy we have been allocated £16,345 for the 2017 / 2018 academic year.
Schools will have to spend the sports funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but have the freedom to choose how they do this. At Twickenham Primary Academy sport and physical education are a priority. We employ teachers with a PE specialism, have some form of physical exercise every day in our curriculum, run internal sports events and hold an ambitious Sports Day at the end of the year.
Primary schools receive additional funding from the government to improve their PE and sports provision. The PE and Sport Premium funding for each school is based on their number of pupils in Years 1 to 6. In most cases, the amount received is determined by the number of eligible pupils at the school based on the January school census. Schools must spend the additional money on improving the quality of their PE provision for the benefit of their pupils.
There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:
