Up until the academic year 2020/2021, the Government has committed to giving all schools an annual sum of money to allow them to develop sports provision and help increase pupil participation in sporting activity. The national vision is for “All pupils leaving primary school [to be] physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.”
We recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children. Our funding enables us to continue to extend our provision for all our pupils and develop confidence and competence in staff.
The money currently equates to £8000 per school per year plus an additional £5 per child. To support our wider vision and plans for PE and sport, we plan to spend the grant in the ways identified below.
