PE & Sports Funding 

What is it?

In the legacy of the British Olympic Games the Government are investing money to improve physical education and sport in primary schools. Schools can choose how they spend the funding within certain criteria.

How much funding will we receive in 2019-2020?

It is anticipated that we will receive £17,307 we also retained a carry forward of £4943 which has been reserved to contribute towards the cost of new playground equipment (climbing wall)-total funds available=£22,250

We aim to spend our sports funding in the following areas during 2019-2020:

  • To ensure that the improvements made are sustainable we are ensuring that staff are up-skilled and given time to train-up others members of staff.
  • We will further engage pupils in leading sports activities (School Sports Captains and Sports Leader's programme).
  • We will continue to ensure that new equipment is purchased for both sporting and outdoor adventurous activity (including playground equipment) and that it is well maintained and stored correctly to ensure longevity.
  • We will continue to provide a broad range of sporting activities for all pupils including before and after school activities, theme days and sporting trips including activities such as parkour, orienteering, water-sports and outdoor adventurous/ team building activities
