Sports Premium

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


What is 'Sports premium' funding?

The government provides schools with Sports Premium funding each academic year to provide additional and sustainable improvements to PE and sport for the benefit of all pupils and to encourage the development of healthy and active life styles. Allocations are calculated using the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Money goes directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and P.E; each school will receive £16,000 plus an extra £10 per pupil. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
