Sports Premium

What is 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 primary pupils.

 How much is the Sports Premium Grant?

Allocations are calculated using the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6 and those age 5 in Reception, as recorded at the January Census as follows:

 Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 plus £10 per eligible pupil; and

 At Bradfield Dungworth, we received £16,900 for the academic year 2018-19.  It is anticipated that as a school we will receive a similar amount for 2019/20.

How have we spent our Sports Premium?

  • Links Membership.

This gives us access to local tournaments. We join in with local cluster events. We also get support from the local High School. During 2017/18 we had  a coach working with class teachers to deliver Taekwondo., tennis coach and cricket. In 2018/19 we had a badminton coach, gymnastics  and cricket coach working across school alongside class teachers.
