The Primary PE and Sport Premium is a government-backed funding initiative aimed at helping primary schools across England improve their physical education and sport provisions. Schools receive the PE and Sport Premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. From October 2017, the grant was doubled to £16,000 per school with a further £10 per pupil.
In order to access expertise and appropriate support, Littletown School has commissioned Legacy Sport to facilitate our fully funded after school sports clubs, which are available to all children. Legacy Sport provide specialist sport coaches and work in collaboration with key partners to create innovative, efficient programmes of PE, Sport and Health for young people.
Please see the documents below, which illustrate how we have spent this funding and the positive impact this has had on our pupils' engagement in PE and Sport.
