In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision in our school. This funding is ring fenced which means it can only be used in sport specific areas to make an impact in Physical Education and Sport in schools.
Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and Sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
The DFE vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium is:
All pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
For 2020-21 we have had a particular focus on developing play related experiences as part of our covid recovery. This has proven very effective with feedback from staff and children very positive.
Look at the pure joy! 99% attendance today, we want to come to school because we are happy and we grow. Thank you to all who have helped us develop our play offer.@64Trust @L6Centre @ScrapShed @LFCFoundation @TorusFDNJulie @sovinigroup @HincksAlfie @DirEd_Liverpool @PelotonLiv pic.twitter.com/wJtytKuiQh
