Sports Premium

Sports Premium at Joseph Turner Primary

The government began providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.  This has continued in academic year 2015/16,  2016/17, 2017/18 and current academic year 2018/19.


Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
