Primary P.E. and Sport Funding

4

Following the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games, the Government is investing £150 million per year for the academic years until 2020 to improve the provision of P.E and sport in primary schools.

The funding is designed to impact upon:

  • achievement in P.E lessons
  • an increased involvement in competitive school sport
  • personal health and well-being
  • improved attitudes and behaviour towards learning

At Whitchurch Primary School we are committed to ensuring our pupils enjoy sports and games activities and understand the importance of being active and having a healthy lifestyle.

The school will measure the funding at the end of 2016-17 through:

  • pupil interviews
  • staff skills audits
  • analysis of attendance at clubs
  • School Games application review
  • observation of P.E lessons
