Sport and physical education is fundamental to the early development of children the skills learned during play, physical education and sport contribute to the holistic development of young people. Through participation in sport and physical education, young people learn about the importance of key values such as:
- fair play,
- respect for themselves and others, and
- adherence to rules.
It also provides a forum for young people to learn how to deal with competition and how to cope with both winning and losing. These learning aspects highlight the impact of physical education and sport on a child's social and moral development in addition to physical skills and abilities.
The government has provided additional funding of £450 million over three academic years 2013 -2016. The PE and sports premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils.
This year we have teamed up with Premier Sports. They have a long history of providing high quality curriculum and extra curricular activities in schools across the UK.
Below are the documents that detail how our School Sports Grant was spent during the last 4 academic years.
