What is PE & Sports Premium Funding?
In 2013 the Government introduced PE and Sport Premium funding. Its primary purpose is to improve the quality and provision for PE in primary schools. The Government has stated that:
‘Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
This means that you should use the premium to:
- develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
- make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years’
We value PE playing an important role in the development of our children. We appreciate that PE leads to improved fitness, health and well-being, concentration, positive attitude and academic achievement. We have linked PE to our creative curriculum and provide opportunities for children to have a clear purpose and appreciation of the significance of sport.
