PE and Sports Grant

PE Grant Southwold Primary School is committed to supporting students to develop a love for sport. We encourage children to be physically active and teach them to understand the importance of healthy living and well being. Whilst it is good to have lots of fun and enjoyment of any sport, independence is always encouraged for each child to gain their full potential. Each child is positively engaged in all of the activities we offer at Southwold. We provide after school sports clubs for all children in order for them to gain further support and become engaged in physical activities further. We have our own school football team and enjoy other outside sports, such as ice skating and swimming.

What is Sports Premium?

The Government is providing funding of £150 million for primary schools to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and P.E for all children.

We will be following the guidelines for how to spend this money and a few of these examples are listed below:

Suggested use of FundingWhat we have done
