This year the government is continuing to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is allocated to primary school head teachers.
The funding that Arnbrook Primary School receives annually over this period is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. Schools are free to decide how to spend the grant, but they must be able to show that their spending has led to a “direct and sustained” improvement in sporting provision. The guidance from the DfE and EFA says that schools should use the funding to:
• Develop or add to the PE and sport activities they already offer.
• Make improvements that will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
