PE and Sport Premium

All young people should have the opportunity to live active and healthy lives. A positive experience of sport and physical activity at a young age can build a lifetime habit of participation.

PE and physical activity has numerous benefits for children and young people's physical health as well as their mental health and wellbeing by increasing self-esteem and emotional wellbeing and lowering anxiety and depression.

The School Sport and Activity Action Plan sets out the Governments commitment to ensuring that children and young people have access to at least 60 minutes of sport and physical activity a day with the recommendation of 30 minutes being delivered in the school day.

The PE and Sport Premium helps schools to achieve this aim by making additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport offered in school.

Schools can use this funding to:

  • Develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport that our school provides
  • Build capacity and capability in the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in the future
