PE & Sports Grant
The Government are spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools by allocating extra funding directly to primary headteachers.
The premium must be used to fund additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2016 to 2017 academic year, to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.
Our 2016/17 expenditure focuses on developing two areas – the quality of provision provided by teachers and the development of the school’s current facilities to make maximum use of the space we have.
This will be primarily achieved through investing money to make the Maxwell Road site more easily accessible to the children during the school day and resourcing large, outdoor games, as well as hiring a PE specialist to provide training, challenge and direction to class teachers, building a legacy of high quality PE provision.
