Radford Primary Academy Sports Funding 2018 / 2019

At Radford we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children. 

Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.

What is the Sports Premium?

The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for the academic year 2016/17 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. In 2017 / 2018 there is additional funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year for the next two years. This is £8870 at Radford. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools. 

Purpose of the funding

At Radford Primary academy in 2018 2019 we receive £17730 including top up funding.
