Sports Funding

Primary School PE and Sport Funding 2019-2020

Purpose of the funding

- Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
- Possible uses for the funding include:
- hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE
- new or additional Change4Life sport clubs
- paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport
- providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport
- running sport competitions, or increasing participation in the school games
- buying quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE/sport
- providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs.

How will we be spending the PE & Sports Funding and who will benefit?

At Peafield Lane Academy, we believe all children should benefit from the funding regardless of sporting ability; that children should be given the opportunity to compete in advanced tournaments and that staff should have access to training opportunities and continued professional development.

Some of the funding will be used to purchase new equipment, some to bring coaches into school to introduce new sports and some funding will be used to improve confidence amongst staff in the delivery of high quality PE lessons across the school. We feel that this is the most effective and efficient way for the funding to have a long lasting and positive effect on future learning and physical development of children within our school.
What is the PE & Sport Funding?
Primary school sport funding is provided by the Government. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
