In March 2013 the Government announced a package of funding to support and improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools and to promote healthy lifestyles. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, and Media and Sport. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. Schools have the freedom to choose how to use the money to improve their provision of PE and sport and to promote the health and wellbeing of all pupils. In the academic year of 2019/20 we were allocated £18,760
For many years All Saints’ have enjoyed and celebrated the involvement of a vast range of sports and sporting events from highly competitive to taking part for the fun and enjoyment of it. All children are encouraged to ‘have a go’ and know that their efforts will be appreciated and praised whatever the outcome. With this ethos we see most of the children in school taking part in sport at some point and many taking part on a very regular basis, making sport a life choice. The funding provided is helping us to maintain and improve the sporting and wellbeing opportunities for our children.
