PE and Sport Grant

Schools receive an annual ring-fenced budget for the provision of sports and PE in schools. In 2017 the amount invested by the government in this was doubled in order to support their target of children accessing 30 minutes of physical activity every day in school.

Purpose of funding

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but schools have been given the freedom to choose how they do this. A list of possible uses has been suggested.

Wheelock Primary school has decided to use the money to:

  • Employ Premier Sport; a sports coaching company, to deliver professional coaching for all children from Years 1 to 6.
  • Purchase equipment for PE lessons as well as outdoor resources.
  • Provide weekly "Fit for Life" sessions for all Key Stage 2 children.
  • Provide swimming lessons for all children in Years 3 and 4
  • Provide Martial Arts and Street Dance lessons for all children in Years 3 and 4
