PE and Sports Premium Funding
Primary School PE and Sport Mission Statement
At Fernvale Primary School, we wish to provide all pupils with the best PE and sport provision possible. We aim to deliver a programme of high-quality lessons and to provide the opportunities that will enable all pupils to build their confidence and achieve their full potential.
Primary School PE and Sport Funding
The government is providing additional funding to improve the 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 allocated to primary school headteachers.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools. The funds will go directly to schools who will decide what is best for their children’s needs with the aim of improving the quality of provision in every state primary school in England.
Purpose of funding
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this. This could vary from specialist coaching for school sport and teacher training for Physical Education and Physical Literacy or to dedicated sports programmes, Change4Life sport clubs and support for after-school or weekend competitions.
