The Government is providing continued funding for primary schools in order to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools.
This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to schools to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
All state-maintained schools, academies, middle schools, special schools and pupil referral units which have primary aged pupils (as reported in the January school census) will receive the funding.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details.
This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Anlaby Primary School.
All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £16,000 plus a premium of £10 per pupil.
For the academic year Sept 2023 – August 2024 we will receive an amount of £19,471.

With the above rationale in mind, and following the guidelines for how to spend this money, our initial plans for the use of the Sports Premium funding include:
