SCHOOL SPORT FUNDING
The government introduced dedicated sports funding to primary schools in September 2013 and increased this in October 2017 with the following aims:
The chief medical officer has also advised that ALL children should complete 60 minutes of physical activity a day, in addition to the taught PE curriculum. It is recommended that half of this (30 minutes) is provided within the school day.
The grant is paid directly to schools in addition to standard funding. Schools decide how to use the additional funding but must report the use and impact of the funding online. We have used the new recommended template (2017) to report on our spending and plans for the next academic year - please follow the link below.
