Primary School PE and Sport Funding

 

What is it? 

In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport provision.  

Funding is be allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils, including: primary, middle, special and nonmaintained special schools, academies and pupil referral units from 1 September 2013.

Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

  

What does Our Vision mean for PE and Sport?  

At Long Lane we aim  

  • to provide high quality physical education for all children, delivered by members of staff, who are committed to engaging pupils and developing their skills in this area of the curriculum.

  • to provide all children with the opportunity to engage in competitive sporting activities, both within our school and the wider community.

  • to have a positive impact on their physical development, all-round health and confidence, while fostering a love of physical activity, which they will carry forward as they move through life.

To make this happen, we have identified three key strands to develop within our school:

1.  Enhancing the quality of PE lessons
2.  Developing school sport opportunities
3.  Promoting a healthy, active lifestyle.
