The Government has released funding for schools with primary aged pupils, for PE and school sports. This is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools. This funding must be used to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, so that they develop healthy lifestyles. Schools will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
The approach Curnow School has taken is based on the desire to ensure all children benefit from the funding regardless of their sporting ability and is therefore spending the grant with the aim of giving all children extra opportunities and experiences in a range of ‘sporting’ activities outside of the curriculum we already offer or provide enhancement opportunities within existing plans (enhancing resources of the school).
