What is the Sports Premium Grant?

The Sports Premium Grant is additional funding from the Government to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.

It is also for improving the health and wellbeing of all primary pupils.

Sports Premium 2020 - 2021

At Sparsholt C of E Primary School we aim to ensure that every child has equal access to a wide range of sporting activities, both competitive and non-competitive, and that physical activity is promoted to encourage high levels of participation throughout the school. The school wishes to ensure that children’s engagement is long lasting and to celebrate and encourage participation that continues beyond the vicinity of the school.

As a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the Department for Education has taken steps to relax the ring-fencing arrangements for the PE and sport premium in the 2019 to 2020 academic year to allow any unspent grant to be carried forward into the 2020 to 2021 academic year.

The School Governors are committed to closely monitoring the spending and impact of the Sports Premium through the revision at the Curriculum Committee.
