PE and Sport Premium Funding for Schools

Posted on: December 21st, 2017 by simon winfield No Comments

What ways can you use your PE and Sport Premium funding?

In September 2017, we reported on the Governments plans to double PE and Sport Premium funding. A decision that we championed here at Red Monkey Play.

As with all these funding pots there are restrictions on the spending so we have put together a simple guide on what this means and how best to invest the funds.

How much do I get and what can I spend it on?

Primary Schools with over 17 pupils will receive a minimum of £16000 PE and Sport Premium Funding in 2017/18  (click here for governments guide). Schools are advised that the funding must be used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport that the school offer and this means that schools should use the premium to:

*    Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
*    Build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

The guidance is quite clear, you can use the funding to improve your play areas and equipment. Using the funding in this way means it will go on to benefit pupils for years to come.

How can Red Monkey Help?                                                                   

We are one of the UK’s leading Playground Creation Specialists working with Primary Schools across the Country to provide active, fun and challenging play and learning equipment. Our Physical Development Products are developed to build and encourage physical development and activity.

Trim Trails, Climbing Walls and our Outdoor Gym range are a great way to invest your PE and Sport Premium Funding as they enable primary aged children to develop physically whilst also encouraging and developing motor skills, upper body strength, core strength and balance. Children will be more active, burn more energy and when the items are used as part of everyday activity will help the fight against childhood obesity.

If you want to focus more on Sports Activity then we offer a wide range of Multi Use Games Areas (MUGA) products including football and hockey goals, target walls, cricket boards, basketball posts and nets and many more. Playground Markings can help to create activity areas within your existing playgrounds.

This is a subject close to our heart and for many years we have campaigned and supported our young children to be more active, we are delighted to support schools in getting the most from their funding.
