The Government has provided additional funding to improve the provision of Physical Education (PE) and Sport in primary schools. Every primary school receives a block amount plus an additional sum based on the number of pupils on roll. The money must be spent on improving PE and sport provision and schools are free to determine how best to use the funding, but must work towards:

  • improving the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision (both in the curriculum and extra curriculum);
  • increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils have an opportunity to take part;
  • developing healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

The PE and Sport Premium provides an excellent opportunity for the school to further improve its PE provision and to do so in the wider context of the Bury Schools Partnership, fully utilising the skills and experience across the group of schools.
