Sports Premium Funding

What is Sports Premium?

Sports Premium is an amount of money which the government has agreed to allocate to schools based upon the number of pupils. From 2017 each school received an increased amount of funding.  In 2019 we will receive totalling £17,020 at The Brigg. The Sports Premium is used to increase the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision, and increasing participation in PE and Sport. At The Brigg Infant School, we strive to promote healthy and active lifestyles and aim to provide sporting opportunities for all pupils.
