The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum 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 Headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for their children.



The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. OFSTED play a significant role in ensuring that schools target this funding in areas which will lead to clear outcomes in raising standards and opportunities in PE and school sport for all children throughout the Primary Phase. All schools receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil per annum. For Bosvigo School, this meant a grant of £9300 for the 2015/16 academic year.



At Bosvigo, we aim to promote and support healthy lifestyles and place great importance on the physical and emotional wellbeing of our children. We understand the huge role sport and physical activity plays in supporting children’s emotional and physical development and recognise the positive effect sport has on all aspects of school life. The targeted and strategic use of Sport Premium funding will support us in achieving our aims.



The purpose of this funding is to ensure improvement in the quality of sport and PE provision for all children (Department for Education, March 2013). At Bosvigo, we use the grant:



  • To improve the provision of PE at Bosvigo School
  • To broaden the range of sporting opportunities and experiences for all children at Bosvigo
  • To develop a positive attitude towards PE and Sport amongst all pupils
  • To develop confidence and skills and encourage a life-long love of sport and physical activity together with an understanding of the health benefits participation in sports activities offers.

The Governors of the school will ensure that there is an annual statement to parents on how the Primary Sport Premium Funding has been used to improve the uptake and outcomes for PE/sports both within and beyond the school day. This task will be carried out within the requirements published by the Department for Education. It is the responsibility of the Headteacher, or a delegated member of staff, to produce regular reports for the Governors’ Finance & Personnel sub-committee.
