Northwood Primary School PE and Sports Grant
In March 2013 the government announced that it was to provide funding in the form of the Primary PE Sports grant of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 – 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and Sport in Primary Schools in England.
It has since been decided by central government that this funding will be extended until 2020.
Purpose of funding
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and Sport, but they will have the freedom to chose how they do this.
The four objectives of the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding are:
- To improve the quality of existing PE teaching through continuing professional learning in PE for generalists, so that all primary pupils improve their health, skills and physical literacy and have broader exposure to a range of sports.
- To increase participation levels in competitive sport and healthy activity of pupils and maintain these into adolescence.
- To increase the quality of initial teacher training in PE and sport and to promote PE specialisation in primary level workforce.
- Schools understand and value the benefits of high quality PE and sport, including its use as a tool for whole school improvement.
