Primary Sports Premium Funding Report

In 2013, the government pledged to provide additional funding to primary schools to improve PE and sport provisions. The funding is provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, and Media and Sport, and sees money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

For the 2022/23 academic year, each school received £16,000, plus an additional payment of £10 per pupil. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provisions in schools. 

Lady Royd Primary received £19,300 PE and Sports Premium funding for the 2022/23 academic year.

Details of the 2022/23 allocation and spend to date are covered in the Lady Royd Sports Premium Funding Report 2022-23

Catch-Up Funding

In June 2020 the government announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up on missed learning caused by coronavirus (COVID19).

This is especially important for the most vulnerable pupils and pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds who we know have been most affected.

Details of how this is funded can be found at: Catch-up premium - GOV.UK (

BGGS Catch-Up

Covid-19 has led to an unprecedented array of challenges for school. The mental, physical and economic impact will have affected families in different ways, and children will be returning to school having had different experiences. While some may have engaged well with remote learning, others will have had less positive experiences. Some may have experienced trauma or loss or have struggled to access and take full advantage of learning at home. Evidence suggests that children from less well-off backgrounds will have been disproportionately affected, and that existing learning gaps will have widened.

The school is committed to ensuring that students have the best possible chance of success over the coming year, and so is following guidance from the DfE and the Educational Endowment Foundation’s evidence-based research to inform our catch-up strategy and use of the £79,000 funding we will receive.
