Using our Sports Funding Effectively

From 1st September 2013, each primary school received £8,000 plus £5 per pupil to help increase PE expertise in school. Although the funding is ring fenced for PE, schools are free to spend it however they wish, providing PE expertise and quality of PE teaching is improved. This funding should provide a lasting legacy as it was originally announced as only lasting for 2 years but recently this timescale has increased.

We believe the importance of PE at Newtown Linford Primary school is clear for all to see and therefore the extra funding from the school budget represents good value for money. Please click on links below to help further your understanding further.

“The use of money available to promote physical education and sporting opportunities is used appropriately, with a focus on increasing participation in a number of sporting activities. Future plans include developing further training for teachers, as well as making good use of external expertise.”
