Sports Premium Spending 2018,19

What is Sports Premium Grant?

The Sports Premium Grant is additional funding from the Government to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. It is also for improving the health and wellbeing of primary pupils.  The funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport.

How much was the Sports Premium Grant in 2018/19?

Allocations for the academic year 2018/19 were calculated using the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6 and those age 5 in Reception, as recorded at the January 2018 Census as follows: 

Schools with 17 or more pupils receive £16,000 plus £10 per pupil; and at Lisle Marsden C of E Academy, we received 20,796 for the academic year 2018/9.
