Sports Premium

Sports Premium is £150 million worth of funding given by the government to school annually (£80 million from Dept. of Health, £60 million from Dept. of Education and £10 million from Dept. Culture, Media and Sport). This equates to an annual funding of about £8000 to a school such as Westgate. This money is spent to improve PE teaching, raise participation, increase understanding of healthy living and link PE with other curriculum subjects.
