In April 2013, the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport announced new funding of £150 million to support the delivery of PE and school sport. Funding has therefore been allocated to all state maintained secondary, primary, middle and special schools (including non maintained special schools), academies and pupil referral units with primary aged pupils.
Pippins Primary School has been allocated £17,840. The sport premium grant is being used to improve the quality of PE and sport provision and raise standards across the school.
The funding has contributed to our ability to provide more extra-curricular opportunities to a wide variety of children. Prior to the pandemic, we competed regularly with schools in Spelthorne across a range of sports using the school mini bus that was hired. The money has also allowed for continuous up-skilling of staff which is led by both our PE lead and outside agencies.
The link below provides a summary of how the grant was spent for 2019/2020 and 2020/2021.
