Primary PE & Sports Premium
The government are spending over £450 million on this funding over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016. This funding is being jointly provided by the Department for Education and the Department for Culture, Media & Sport with the money going directly to primary schools.
The premium has to be used to fund improvements of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary aged pupils, in the academic year the funding is received to give the opportunity to develop a healthy lifestyle.
At Elsecar Holy Trinity, it is currently the SLT who have the responsibility for developing sport and effective use of the Sport Premium funding, although the long term plan is to delegate this to a sports coordinator. We already have a good reputation for our sport and PE as we strive to promote healthy and active lifestyles and aim to provide sporting opportunities for all our pupils. We welcome this additional funding which has allowed us to further enhance our provision, including entering competitions and it has led to an increase in participation of all different sports.
