How to spend your Sports Premium

The Primary Sports Premium is an investment by the Government into the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in order to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles. We offer several great ways to spend your Sports Premium.

Head teachers are often faced with the challenge of knowing how best to spend this grant in a way that will achieve the greatest impact. Schools want to provide a broad, balanced and high quality range of sporting activities which is often not achievable at school. Rock UK provides fantastic bespoke programmes to help you achieve just this.

Rock UK’s range of adventurous activities means that children have access to a broader range of sports. Our engaging activities generate enthusiasm and excitement for sport whilst teaching children new and interesting skills, encouraging then to find a passion for new experiences.
