Sports Premium

In 2014/15 the Government announced a renewed package of funding for physical education (PE) and school sport. Through a new ‘Sport Premium’ the Government is providing £150 million to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools. This funding will be ring fenced, and will be allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support.

Funding will be allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism. The formula will reference the number of primary-aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11). All schools with seventeen or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £16,000 plus a premium of £10 per pupil. in 2017/18 Frodsham Weaver Vale Primary School received £16850. For information on how we have invested this funding supporting the delivery of high quality Physical Education, promotion of adopting a healthy lifestyle and inter-school competition, please click on the document below.
