Sports & PE funding

The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is being allocated to primary school head teachers.  This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

 

 At Rosehill Infant School we have developed an action plan in order to continue to improve PE provision and raise achievement for all pupils in sport.

 

 Our priorities mean that the funding will:

  • Develop staff expertise in teaching sport skills through providing additional training and professional development
  • Continue to provide quality coaches for teaching some PE lessons across the school
  • Increase participation in sport through the provision of additional after school clubs
  • Purchase additional PE resources to enable a wider and ‘new’ range of sports to be played

 

How much do we get?

Each school receives £8000, plus £5 per pupil on role. This is allocated in two payments in September and April.

 

How is it spent?

A large portion of our funding has been spent on improving our outside environment to enable children to have a variety of physical activities and also through the provision of well trained and experienced coaches delivery high quality PE coaching each week.
