Following the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games, the Government has made a commitment to invest over £450 million on improving Physical Education (PE) and Sport in primary schools over the academic years 2013 – present.
This funding doubled in the academic year of 2017/2018
The Government has chosen to invest in Primary School Physical Education and School Sport from the year 2013 – present. They have done this by offering each primary school £8000 plus £5 per pupil to be spent in any way the school thinks best to improve the teaching and learning of PE and School Sport in their individual school. Schools and Academies determine how best to spend their allocation.
We have decided to spend our allocation to enhance PE within the primary curriculum. Here at Wrenthorpe Academy our aim is to improve the health, fitness and the well-being of all our pupils.
The allocation for 2018 – 2019 is £19,040
