Sport Premium


For the past three years there has been an additional sum of money available to primary schools to develop sport. The amount increased in 2017-18 as a result of additional funding from the sugar tax. For St Michael's the amount was £17155. For 2018-19 we will receive £21,000.


What the funding is for:

Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, but they are free to choose the best way of using the money.

For example, the funding can be used to:

  • hire specialist PE teachers
  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with teaching resources to help them teach PE and sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • run sport competitions
  • run sports activities with other schools

Priorities for 2017-18

Our priorities for the coming year are:

  • Continued emphasis on fitness combined with tag rugby
  • Improve teaching of gymnastics
  • Continued focus on increasing overall participation in sport, especially at lunchtimes (better facilities)
