PE and Sports Grant Funding

What is the PE and Sports Grant?


After the Olympic Games of 2012 the Government identified the following issue:

•Playing sport helps to keep people healthy and is good for communities. Playing sport at school or in a local club is also the first step to competition at the highest level, which helps improve our reputation as a sporting nation, and contributes to economic growth.

•But when people leave school they often stop playing sports, which means people can’t fulfil their sporting potential, and can lead to a less healthy lifestyle. We want to get more people playing sport safely from a young age, and help them keep playing sport throughout their life, no matter what their economic or social background.

This has been extended to include a focus on the development of a healthy lifestyle.

We have been working to support the achievement of these aims through developing staff expertise via professional development from qualified sports coaches.  We are also working on making our school a healthier place for our bodies and monds by increasing physical activity for everyone.

We have had a visit from Olympic Gold Medalist Nicola White who has inspired us to be the best we can be and shared with us her tips for being healthy.

We are also taking part in the Walk to School Challenge to help us stay fit and healthy.
