Sports Premium Funding

Sport Premium Expenditure and Impact

What is the Sport Premium?

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum until 2020 in order to improve the physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.

St. Vincent’s Catholic Primary School has received;

  • £10,700 in the academic year 2015/16
  • £11,155 in the academic year 2014/15
  • £10,180 in the academic year 2013/14


Since September 2013, schools have been held to account over how they spend their additional funding. Ofsted have strengthened the coverage of PE and sport within the ‘Inspectors Handbook’ and will monitor how effectively leaders use the primary PE and sport premium and measure its impact on outcomes for pupils, and how effectively governors hold them to account for this.

In order to get the best value and maximum impact for our children we have allocated the funding in the following way.
