Primary School Sports Grant

PE Action Plan 2016-17

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17 to improve provision of physical education (PE), sport and physical activity in primary schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and is being allocated to all primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools.

East Garforth Primary Academy will receive £9560.00 from the Secretary of State for Education. This is to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2016 to 2017 academic year to give them the opportunity to develop a healthy lifestyle.


How will we use the Sport Premium Grant at East Garforth Primary Academy?

We will use the funding in the following areas:

  • Playground Equipment
  • Training staff
  • Staff leading after school clubs. 
  • Providing sporting experience through specialist workshops, such as dance, rugby and cricket
  • The remaining amount will be used to part fund a full time and a part time trained specialist PE coach.
