Sports Premium

The Government announced in 2013 a package of funding for physical education (PE) and school sport. Through a new ‘Sport Premium’ the Government provided £150 million in each of the following years to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools.

This funding is ring fenced and allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with a dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Funding is allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism. The formula will reference the number of primary-aged pupils (i.e. children between the ages of 5 and 11). All schools with seventeen or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £16,000 plus a premium of £10 per pupil for the academic year 2017-2018.

At Red Hill Primary School we are keen to provide a high quality PE timetable within school as well as a wide range of extra – curricular clubs for children throughout the year. Children enjoy the opportunity to try many different sports such as Golf, Tennis, Dance, Cross Country, Athletics, Football, Multi Skills, Yoga,Karate, Cricket to name but a few.

Finally, primary school experiences are pivotal to the children’s perception of physical activity and we believe that children leave our school equipped to enjoy sport for all its health and social benefits. 

In September 2017 we were delighted when we were awarded the Sainsbury’s School Games GOLD Award.  The Sainsbury’s School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community.
