Leven Valley C of E Primary School

PE & Sport Premium

What is Sport Premium?

It is an extra allocation of ring-fenced funding for all primary schools from the Government introduced in 2013-14 and continued in subsequent years to improve the outcomes for sport and PE for all children. The funding has been extended for the academic year 2021-22.


At Leven Valley C of E Primary School, we aim to improve the quality of PE and sports provision for all children by:

  • Providing specialist coaching to develop children’s skills, knowledge and understanding;
  • Providing high quality professional development opportunities for school staff;
  • Ensuring facilities, equipment and resources are of high quality;
  • Providing access and opportunity for all children to take part and compete in tournaments and competitions and experience a range of sports and physical activity to promote active lifestyles.

In 2021-22 the allocation is a lump sum of £16000, plus £10 per pupil (Y1-Y6.) This school will receive an estimated £16540.
