From September 2013 Outwood Primary has received additional funds to support the development of Physical Education and Sport in school (Sport Premium).
What is the ‘Sport Premium’?
In April 2013 the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and Sport – often referred to as a ‘Sport Premium’. This funding is to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision.
When asked about the ‘Sport premium’ at its launch, Lord Coe reflected:
‘When I stood up in Singapore in 2005, I spoke of London’s vision to connect young people with the inspirational power of the Games so they are inspired to choose sport. By focussing on primary schools, we have the opportunity to use sport and physical activity to shape the daily lives of young people. I know from my own experience what an impact teachers and their engagement can have on the lives of young people.’ (Lord Coe) o spend it’s Sports Premium funding 2016-17
