Sports Grant 2015/2016
The government is continuing to provide additional funding for academic years 2015 to 2016 and 2016 to 2017 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.
Allocations for the academic year 2015/16 are calculated using the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6, and those age 5 in Year R, as recorded on January 2015 Census, as follows:
- Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £8,000 plus £5 per eligible pupil;
The PE and Sport Grant for the 2015 to 2016 academic year is funded over two instalments with 7/12’s paid on 2nd November 2015 and 5/12’s paid on 3rd May 2016.
