The Government has provided funding of £150 million per annum since 2013 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and allows money to go directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
Purpose of the funding
Schools have a central role to play in supporting all children and young people to live healthy active lives. This is particularly true of primary school where the foundations of positive and enjoyable participation in regular physical activity should be established.
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, sport and physical activity they provide. The PE and sports premium should be used to:
- build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now are sustainable and will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
- develop or add to the PE, sport and physical activity provided
How Ryarsh Primary School uses the sports funding
We believe that the sports funding must be used so that all children benefit regardless of sporting ability. Through our use of the sports premium funding, we also aim to ensure that children are provided with a range of rich opportunities that increase their physical activity.
Funding will be used to improve confidence amongst staff in the delivery of high quality PE lessons across the school. This is the most effective and efficient way for the funding to have a long lasting and positive effect on future learning and physical development of children within our school.
