PE and School Sport Funding

What does it mean?

The government is determined to secure a significant and lasting legacy from the very successful 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games that were held in London. In order to achieve this and improve provision of PE and sport in primary schools, additional funding of £150 million per annum has been made available for the academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16.

We are delighted that in our school this amounts to £8,815.00 to spend on enhancing the provision of PE and school sport. Our main aims for funding were:

To give learners the opportunity to take part in a wide range of sports

  • To provide higher quality curriculum PE
  • To take part in more extra curricular sports
  • To encourage learners to take part in more physically active activities
  • TO give learners the opportunity to enter competitions against other local schools
  • To create intra school competitions
  • To use sport as a positive method to enhance behaviour

At St Hugh’s Catholic Primary School we believe that sport plays an important part as it contributes to the health and well being of our learners. Sporting excellence and participation, alongside strong cultural opportunities go hand in hand with academic standards.
