In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision. The funding was for the period 1 September 2014 – 31 August 2015 & September 2015 to August 2016. This funding is ring fenced to be used for sport specific areas to make an impact in Physical Education and Sport in schools.
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.
In 2017, the Government announced that it was doubling the PE and Sports Premium from £160 million to £320million per year and this investment is set to remain doubled for the 2018-2019 academic year.
See below for how we have used and plan to use the funding.
Swimming did not take place in academic year 2020-2021, therefore we cannot report on % of Year 6 able to swim.
