Primary Sports Funding

What is Primary Sports Funding?
The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.  This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school head teachers.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.


How will the funding be spent?

At Luddendenfoot Academy, we have developed an action plan to ensure that the money is spent on initiatives which will have a long lasting impact on the future learning and physcial development of children within our school. View our initiative grid here.

A proportion of the funding has been spent on becoming premium members of the Calderdale Schools Sport Programme (Hipperholme and Lightcliffe High School and Brooksbank High School). As well as joining with other local schools, to form a cluster employing a school sports coordinator to organise a range of sporting festivals and competitions

The following is a summary of how Luddendenfoot Academy has spent the Sport Funding over the last two years. The priorities were designed to develop and support the school’s strength and weaknesses in relation to PE, Healthy Active Lifestyles and Competitive School Sport.
