Sport Grant


General Information: What is the Sports Premium?

The Government has allocated funding  to improve the quality of provision of physical education and sport in primary schools for all of our pupils. The funding is ring fenced which means that it can only be spent on PE and sport provision in school.

We are held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Milburn Primary School.

Purpose of funding

Schools can only spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. Possible uses for the funding include: hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches, paying for professional development opportunities for sport, running sport competitions, or increasing participation in school games, purchasing sports resources & equipment, providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and holiday clubs.

Our Rationale

At Milburn Primary School we feel it is important to encourage pupils to lead healthy and active life styles. Milburn endorse a holistic approach to the development of sport and physical activity for all. We want to enhance the quality of teaching and learning of physical education at Milburn, making the best use of resources to enhance our PE provision in order to raise participation and achievement for all pupils.
