PE and Sport Premium

Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.


Funding is based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6 using data from the January 2016 school census. The premium must be spent to improve the quality of the PE and sports activities offered to pupils. Schools with 16 eligible pupils or fewer receive £500 per pupil. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £8,000 and an additional payment of £5 per pupil.


First Base is not in receipt of PE and Sport Grant funding. All pupils are dual registered at First Base Ipswich therefore, as with pupil premium funding, funding goes directly to the mainstream school. We do not approach schools requesting a proportion due to the low amount of funding this would generate compared to time required to do this. Contribution would be calculated based on the number of days, and terms, the pupil attends.
