Abstract

The aim of this study was to conduct an in depth investigation examining how schools were allocating the Primary Sport Premium funding and what was the most effective method of allocation of funding. A total of nine participants, ranging through different professions within primary PE and sport were interviewed from within two different local education authorities. It was found that the most effective allocation of the Primary Sport Premium funding was through the investment in the training and up skilling of generalist primary teachers in physical education. It was also found that schools that were a part of a Sports Partnership benefited greatly, leading to an improved and more sustained impact of the correctly allocated funding. The findings of this study provide guidance for the future allocation of the Primary Sport Premium funding for Head teachers of primary schools.
