Sports Premium Funding
The Government provides additional funding each year which must be used by primary schools to make
additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport. This must be for the benefit of
all pupils and encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles. At Pulham Primary School, we have
received the following funding awards:
2013-14 – £5235
2014-15 – £8256
2015-16 – £8584
2016-17 – £8574
This will lead to an improvement in the provision and an increase in participation and achievement in all
physical education and school sport. Our school has freedom to choose how we do this.
In line with the guidance given by the Department for Education, we have used this funding to:
jointly fund a cluster school’s sports co-ordinator
