PE Premium at Unstone Junior School
In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education and sport in education. This funding has been allocated to allow schools to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.
Funding was allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils, including: primary, middle, special and non-maintained special schools, academies and pupil referral units from 1st September 2013. A typical primary school will receive about £9,250 annually in the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15.
Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport, so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
