What is the Sport Premium?
Since 2013 the Government has provided funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - is allocated to primary school headteachers. It is 'ring-fenced' which means that it can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. On 6th February 2014 the Prime Minister, David Cameron committed to contunue the funding for the Primary PE & Sport Premium until 2020. Fortunately this funding has continued into 2022. Following the pandemic, PE and Sport is more vital than ever. Not only for our children's physical health, but also for their mental health and well-being.
What do we already do?
We are delighted to be able to invest in sport at Havannah First School, we believe that participation in sport can change the lives of children, giving them great opportunities to be fit, happy and well, both now and in the future. We have always ensured that children have two hours of quality PE teaching every week and we are committed to ensuring that children get their 30 active minutes a day. We provide many extra opportunities for groups and individuals on top of our planned curriculum and we engage with the School Games, so that our children have the experience of competitive sport.
