PE and Sport Funding 2016 – 2017


In June 2013 the Government announced that they were going to provide additional funding to help improve the Physical Education (PE) and sports provision in primary schools.  The extra funding is being provided by the Department of Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport.  The money goes directly to the Head Teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their pupils and is received as 2 separate payments. 


At Coddington Primary the amount expected for 2016/2017 (based on last year’s figure) is £9,768.00.  Approximately £4,075 is expected in May 2016 and £5,693 in November 2016.


We strongly believe in using this opportunity to considerably enhance our sports provision at Coddington Primary and the following indicates how this funding is used and how it impacts school:

  • Use of high quality sports coaches to work with both staff and pupils.
