The Government is continuing to provide funding for the academic year of 2022/2023 to provide substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and sees money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
Purpose of Funding
Schools have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport but they have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding include:
- Providing staff with professional development
- Hiring qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
- Introducing new activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport
- Supporting and involving the least active children by providing targeted activities
- Entering or running more sports competitions
- Partnering with other schools to run sports activities
- Embedding physical activity throughout the day through active playgrounds
- Raising attainment in primary school swimming
How we are spending the Sports Funding and who benefits?
The Governors agree that the money must be used so that:
- all children benefit regardless of sporting ability
- staff have access to working alongside specialists and have opportunities for training
- there are a greater variety of extracurricular opportunities for PE/sport
- a high proportion of children are given opportunities to compete in tournaments and competitions and that swimming is continued to be offered to all children.
Catch up funding report
Due to the lockdown our children experienced throughout 2020 the Government are providing money over the course of the next year so that children are able to “catch up”. This is not only to catch up on missed learning but can also be spent on assisting them with their mental health and wellbeing as well as developing social skills.
The report below shows how our school will be spending the money.
