PE – Additional funding for to enhance sporting provision
We are very proud of our sporting provision at Tockwith CE Primary School. PE is high on our agenda, and we are committed to providing 2 hours high quality PE per week as well as a host of different after school clubs. We regularly compete against other schools in a number of different sports across different age ranges.
The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school headteachers.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
Purpose of funding
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.
Possible uses for the funding might include
