For the last three years, the Government has provided primary schools with an additional grant for improving the participation and attainment of pupils in PE and sport. The aim of this is to achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools, with all pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
St Mary’s has been awarded £20,490 for 2017-2018 (this is an approximate figure based on current Government guidance and may be subject to change) via the PE and Sports Grant to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of pupils aged 5-11 years old, so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles.
We will use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport we offer and to make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
