The government is providing additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
From September 2013, schools will be held to account over how they spend their additional funding. Ofsted will strengthen the coverage of PE and sport within the ‘Inspectors’ Handbook’ and supporting guidance so that both schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the school’s overall provision offered.
Schools will also be required to include details of their provision of PE and sport on their website, alongside details of their broader curriculum, so that parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within and beyond the school day.
At Rushbrook Primary Academy we have allocated the funding in a number of ways:
In 2021/ 2022 we are hoping to secure funding that will allow us to educate families and young people within the community to allow them to feel confident about leading and participating in a number of clubs.
