Sports Grant 2017/18
The government is continuing to provide additional funding for academic years 2017/18 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. Our allocation for 2017/18 is £16500.
Allocations for the academic year 2017/18 are calculated using the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6, and those age 5 in Year R, as recorded on January 2017 Census, as follows:
- Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £16,000 plus £10 per eligible pupil;
