The government stress the importance of all children living a healthy and active life and advocate the many benefits of physical activity for their health, mental and emotional well-being, including increasing self-esteem. Access to sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits for pupils and schools, improving behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement.
The PE and Sport Premium fund provides £320m of government funding, allocated to schools directly for them to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered in their setting.
The Sport Premium funding will be used in line with our aims to achieve our school vision.
With this funding we aim to:
Members of staff and governors to decide ways in which funding can be spent to enhance our PE provision and provide new, exciting ways to broaden our children’s sporting experiences.
