From September 2013 the Government has allocated funding directly to primary schools to support and improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments of Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – will be 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.
PE and sports are an entitlement of all pupils, integral to the curriculum offered to our children. Sport is taught throughout school; the positive values of sport support and underpin the ethos and values of our school. All children receive a minimum of 2 hours timetabled PE each week with a range of after-school clubs and activities helping to develop this further.
Staff receive specific, sports-related training and observe/work alongside specialist sports coaches to develop their expertise further. All children are able to access our PE curriculum and have their sporting achievements, both in and out of school, celebrated by the whole school community.
