PE and Sport Premium
Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
PE and Sport Premium
The government is providing additional funding to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding in order to improve the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to schools to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport. We are required to publish on-line information about how we have used the additional funding, including details about our sporting provision alongside curriculum details. This will ensure that parents/carers and others are made fully aware of the PE and sporting provision at Blair Peach Primary school.
This funding should help embed the Department for Education’s vision for Primary PE. The Department for Education’s vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium is to ensure all pupils leaving primary school are physically literate and have the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
Blair Peach Primary School has been awarded the YST Silver Quality Mark. This successfully illustrates the outstanding impact PE has made.
