In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education and sport in education.
This funding has been allocated to allow schools to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.
Funding was allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils, including: primary, middle, special and non-maintained special schools, academies and pupil referral units from 1st September 2013.
Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport, engaging pupils in regular physical activity, increasing confidence, knowledge and skill of all teaching staff and to broaden the experience of a range of sports and activities offered, so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
At St Mark’s, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of ALL children. In addition, it is considered that a PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities, have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of the children. The Headteacher and PE co-ordinator are committed to ensure that all pupils receive well-planned PE sessions, delivered by confident and well trained qualified coaches and teachers. The successful delivery of the curriculum supports all aspects of health education within the school.
