PE and Sports Grant

In March 2013 the Government announced that it as to provide funding of £600 million per annum, for the academic years 2013 to 2017, to improve PE and sport in primary schools in England.

For our school that equates to £8,000 per year (commencing in the 2015/16 academic year) plus £5 per pupil from Year 1 to Year 6.

The vision being that all pupils leaving primary school are physically literate and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
