    PE and Sports Funding

    PE and Sports Funding 2016-2017

    Since September 2013 the government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.  This funding – provided jointly by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools; however, schools will have the freedom to choose how they do this, within the Conditions of Grant issued by the Department for Education.

    Clandon C of E School received £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil for each academic year to improve our provision of PE across the whole school. This amounted to £8,115 in total for the academic year 2016-17.

    During 2016/17 the funding was utilised in the following way:




    Active Schools Membership Access to annual conference, best practice forum and various training courses to support the PE provision, including schemes of work for various sports at EYFS and KS1 & 2 levels.  Teachers will have improved knowledge and understanding of how to teach PE and sports leading to higher quality PE lessons. £650
