Sports Premium

The information below provides details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.

What is the Sports Premium Grant?

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6.

The government allocated £450 million for the academic years 2013-16 to provide new funding for the primary school sport. Each school received £8,000 each year plus an extra £5 per pupil in those years. At the start of the 2017 academic year the Sport Premium doubled.


This year the grant is based on an allocation of £16000 to schools with more than 17 pupils, and an additional £10 per pupil.

The money comes directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all children. Schools must spend the sports funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but have the freedom to choose how they do this.


The document attached outlines the plans Larkrise has to improve PE, sports, and physical health and well-being for the pupils at the school and the wider community.
