David Cameron speeds up cash for school sport...

In light of the Government's announcement of a ring-fenced funding pot worth £150 million to be ploughed into school sport, David Cameron has held a special No 10 summit and told Children and Education Minister Edward Timpson to take personal responsibility for ensuring money goes quickly to the right places.

If you we’re thinking of a career change and embarking on a journey, that for many is a life changing and rewarding experience, then now is the time to do it. Premier Sport, is an established Franchisor with over thirteen years of experience in providing a sustainable, profitable business model for entrepreneurs wanting to make a difference in the communities in which they live.

And off the back of a fantastic 2012 of sporting endeavour, the government has stepped up to ensure that the legacy of 2012 is realised and as a nation we can deliver on expectations.

So, what is this ring-fenced funding?

The new fund is worth £150 million per annum for the next two years. Funded by the Department for Education (£80 million), the Department of Health (£60 million) and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (£10 million), it will see funds go directly into the hands of primary school head teachers for them to spend on sport. In a move that shows the government’s commitment to school sport the Sport Premium will be ring fenced and can only be spent on sport provision in schools. No other funding for schools is ring-fenced.

Funding for schools will be calculated by reference to the number of primary-aged pupils (ie children between the ages of 5 and 11). All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil. Smaller schools will receive the sum of £500 per pupil. Thus, a school with 16 eligible pupils would receive £8,000; a school with 12 such pupils would receive £6,000 and a school with 5 such pupils - the smallest that we know of - would receive £2,500.

What does this mean to Premier Sport Franchisees?

The Department of Education has provided guidance to schools as to where funds should be attributed to improve the provision of school sport and physical education and at the top of the list is:

  • hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE.

Which is where we fit in, as the UK’s largest and most established provider of sports coaches working in the primary schools sector, we are perfectly placed to offer schools the expertise and knowledge to ensure high quality measurable provision.

Plus, we’ve just launched a brand new suite of products called ‘Inspire’ to service and achieve the additional objectives of the funding.
