The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 - 2017 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools (due to double in 2017-18). This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will be allocated to primary school headteachers.
For Horsmonden Primary School this means we will receive £8000 + an additional £5 per pupil in Years 1-6. In total, we will receive £8,920.
In our school we are going to use the money to provide high quality PE lessons and sporting opportunities. All teachers will be made confident and skills in delivering outstanding PE lessons and we will provide a range of opportunities to impact each child’s physical fitness, health and enjoyment of PE. We will also ensure a variety of clubs are on offer.
Our expected outcomes
By 2017 we will be continuing to provide 2 hours of outstanding physical education lessons per week. Children will have had the opportunity to try out new sports, learn new skills and develop existing skills. Confidence will have grown, and every pupil will be healthier. Pupils will have learnt how to evaluate and improve their skills by working individually, in pairs, in groups and in teams.
All children will have had the opportunity to compete both at intra-school and inter-school level.
Resources will be accessible to support the taught and extra curriculum.
We are now are proud recipients of our Silver School Games Award.
