Sports funding

Making best use of the additional funding provided by the government is really important if we are going to enhance and develop PE and sport in our school.

The aims of this funding in schools is to:

  • increase in participation rates and success in competitive school sports
  • ensure an inclusive curriculum
  • develop the range of provision and opportunities for alternative sporting activities
  • improve and embed partnership work on physical education with other schools and other local partners
  • link with other subjects that contribute to pupils’ overall achievement and their greater social, spiritual, moral and cultural skills
  • develop a  greater awareness amongst pupils about the dangers of obesity, smoking and other such activities that undermine pupils’ health.
