Primary school PE and school sport: new funding  

The PE funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision within the school. This year the funding has doubled this year to £16,000 plus £10 per pupil from Year 1 to year 6. So our school, this year, has been allocated £17,700. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

The evidence for physical activity and keeping active is overwhelming. An active lifestyle in and outside of school has a great impact on children’s wellbeing, productivity, stress levels, energy levels, obesity, brain activity, brain health and children’s moods.

The new Childhood Obesity: A plan for action policy (August 2016) states that the daily recommendation of physical activity for children aged 5-11 is 60 minutes per day. Schools are responsible for 30 minutes of this exercise, the other 30 minutes should be done at home.

How will we be spending the PE and Sport funding and who will it benefit?
