Primary PE and Sport Funding 2015-2016 and 2016-2017

Schools are allocated a sum of money, called the Primary PE and Sport Funding to support all children and improve the quantity, quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. The allocation is calculated according to the intake of the school, and the school must decide how best to use the money to improve the breadth and quality of PE and sport provision, including increased participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

Our indicative Primary PE and Sport Funding was £8675. Schools will be given 65% this year and 35% next year.


At Huncoat Primary School we have decided to use this money to :

  •  Employ specialist teachers or qualified coaches to work alongside teachers in lessons to increase their subject knowledge and confidence in PE.
  • Procure quality-assured professional training for staff to raise their confidence and competence in teaching PE and sport.
  • Buy into the ‘Hyndburn Sports Partnership’.
  • Employing expert advice to evaluate the school’s current strengths and development points in PE and sport, and implement plans for improvement, including purchasing of new equipment where necessary.
  • Forge links with PE teachers in local secondary schools to help teachers to improve their PE and the sports provision in school.
  • Pay for a Level 3 football coach to develop Gifted and Talented footballers.


Targets for 2016-2017
