One Childhood, One Chance

Sports Grant 2016-2017

The government provided additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is referred to as the Sports Premium and is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. The funds must be spent on improving the school's provision of PE and sport, and the school can choose how they can do this.

Ramsgate Arts Primary School received £5,500 this year, the three main purposes of the funding are


  • allow schools to increase the skills of their staff, by providing high quality professional development opportunities
  • enable children to participate in extra-curricular sport which will lead into local clubs and extended services
  • provide such a variety of opportunities for our children that they will develop a lifelong love of sport.
