Sport Premium Overview 2015/2016

At Springfield School we believe PE & Sport plays an important role in making our vision statement a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.

We welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding for 2 years to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We have been committed to using this resource to develop high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.

We are pleased that the government have continued to provide additional funding for 2015/2016. We will continue to use this funding to implement and sustain high quality learning opportunities in PE and sport, as well making sure our children learn about and lead healthy life styles.

Sport Premium Grant

Funding for Springfield will be calculated according to the number of pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual census in January 2015. All schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil.

These figures are based on 2014/2015, final figures for 2015/2016 have not yet been released from the DfE.

Total no of primary aged pupils between the ages of 5-11( Jan 2015) 181
