PE & Sports Premium (Primary)
The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
The Trust recognises 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.
In the coming year (2016/17) we are looking to spend our grant on some of the
- Specialist sports coaches to work alongside Mr Farrell and the team.
- Additional resources to further develop our Primary PE curriculum.
- Additional training for our staff to enhance their skills.
