The government has announced new funding for school sport and PE until 2019, saying, "We can create a culture in our schools that encourages all children to be active and enjoy sport."
The government is providing additional funding to schools to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. Schools are able to pay for extra coaching sessions to improve the quality of sports and PE provision.
Throughout this year at Audlem St James we are planning on using our sports funding money to enhance PE in a range of ways — please see the attached documents for details of our plans and the impact of our use of sports funding last year.
