Sport Funding

What is the PE and Sporting Fund?

The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for the academic year from 20113/14 to 2019/20 to provide new substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Department 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 children.
Purpose of the funding
Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding include:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sport coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE to support their professional development,
  • New or additional Change4 life sport clubs
  • 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 sports clubs.

HL contribution was excellent clear lines of communication with all PLT’s across the learning community.

Children gained the opportunity of attending a club and to develop their skills in different sporting activities.  Clear feedback from the leaders to the class teacher on children’s progress which feed into their ongoing assessment of the children’s progress in PE.
