PE and Sports Grant

The Department of Education Vision Statement

 

That ALL pupils leave 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.

 

5 Key Indicators

 

  • The engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles.
  • The profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement.
  • Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
  • Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
  • Increased participation in competitive sport.

Funding for Primary School PE and Sports

 

The Government has allocated £150 million state funding to all  primary schools for the academic years of 2013 - 2016. It has now been confirmed that the funding will continue for the academic year 2016-2018.

 

The  aim of this grant  is to further improve the provision and quality of Physical Education (PE) and Sport provided by all primary schools across the country. 

The funding is provided jointly by the Departments of Education, Health; Culture Media & Sport and is to be ring fenced to make that schools spend their grant only upon PE and Sport as well as initiatives that address developing healthy lifestyles, either in lessons or beyond the school day.
