Through the ‘Sport Premium’ the Government provides funding for the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools.
This funding is ring fenced, and is allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Funding is allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism. The formula references the number of primary-aged pupils (i.e. children between the ages of 5 and 11). All schools with seventeen or more primary-aged pupils receive a lump sum of £16,000 plus a premium of £10 per pupil.

At Cathedral, we recognise the positive outcomes that a high-quality PE and school sport curriculum can achieve in all personal, social, cognitive and physical aspects of a child’s development and well-being. We aim to embed a culture of participation, enjoyment and achievement in sport, whilst building an understanding of health and well-being in our pupils that they continue to follow throughout their lives. Our school sport programme offers a wide array of activities and extensive opportunities for participation in competitions and we are currently looking at creating more opportunities for the children.
