PE and Sports Premium

Sports Premium - 2018-2019

In March 2013, the government announced Olympic Legacy funding for physical education and school sport. This money is ring fenced for PE and school sport and initially consisted of a 2 year grant from 2013-2015. However, it has now been extended into 2019.  This funding must be targeted at improving the quality of provision and developing healthy lifestyles for all children in every state primary school in England.

In September 2017, the government announced that this funding had been doubled.  As a result, for the academic year Sept 2017 to July 2018, Carpenters Primary School received a total of £19,480 towards Sports initiatives.  In the academic year 2018-2019, the school will receive another £19,500.
