Sports Premium Funding at Coley
What is the Sports Premium?
As part the ‘Olympic Legacy’, the government provided £150 million, over the subsequent two academic years, to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding was jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture and Media and Sport. It meant that money went directly to Primary Schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and P.E.
Schools received £8,000, plus an extra £5 per pupil, each year. The money is only to be spent on sport and PE provision in schools

What is the Impact?
As a result, more children are both engaged in and enjoy, sporting activity and physical exercise. Also children are engaged in competitive sport over a wider range of sports and activities thereby having impact upon the children’s health and well-being. There has also been positive impact upon behaviour in the playground through offering a wider range of activities to the children. For further detail please see our latest Sports Premium Budget and Impact Report above.
The primary school additional sports funding, for promoting pupils’ greater participation in sport, is used well to train teachers so that they are confident to teach a variety of sports. This has been successful; staff and pupils have benefitted from increased confidence and the enjoyment of new sports as well as the opportunity to participate in local interschool competitions.
