Sports Grant

The PE and Sports Grant is an amount of money which the government agreed to allocate to schools for the academic years (2013 - 2014 & 2014 - 2015). We have recently received confirmation of our final allocation for this academic year.  The funding amount received by schools is based upon the number of children of primary age at the school. The Sport Premium must be used to increase the quality & breadth of PE & Sport provision, and increase participation in PE & Sport.

At Springside Primary School, we strive to promote healthy and active lifestyles and aim to provide sporting opportunities for all our pupils. We welcome the additional funding, which will further enhance our provision and provide additional opportunities for increased participation.

The 2015 - 2016 Sport Premium funding FOR OUR SCHOOL WAS £8335.

Below is how we used our funding.
