Primary PE and Sport Funding

Primary PE and Sport Funding

Schools are allocated a sum of money, called the Primary PE and Sport Funding to support all children and improve the quantity, quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. The allocation is calculated according to the intake of the school, and the school must decide how best to use the money to improve the breadth and quality of PE and sport provision, including increased participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

  • Provide training for midday supervisors to introduce playground games at breaks and lunchtimes.
  • Ensure that all pupils can swim at least 25m by the end of KS2 by providing additional swimming lessons if required
  • School to participate in all events organised through the School Sports Partnership
