What is the Sports Premium?
The Government is providing funding of £150 Million per annum for the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new, sustainable and substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly met and provided by the Departments for Education, Health & Culture and Media and Sport - and shall see money going directly to primary school Headteachers and Principals to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision at the Queensmead Primary Academy. We have joint priorities with the Greenwood Dale Foundation Trust.
Purpose of Funding
The Academy will have to spend the sport premium funding on improving our provision of PE and sport through and beyond the school day, but we have the freedom to choose how we do this!
