PE Sports Grant

 

 

PE & Sports Premium 2015-16

The government has provided funding aimed at improving the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision in Schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – has been allocated to all primary schools. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and Sport in schools. Each school has received an additional £8,000 [plus £5 per pupil] to improve the quality of sport and PE for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2015 to 2016 academic year to give them the opportunity to develop a healthy lifestyle.

At High Park School, we recognise the contribution of physical activity including P.E. to the health, well-being and learning for all children. Physical activity is particularly crucial for our pupils due to their sensory processing needs and developmental levels. The wide range of physical activities that are included in our curriculum provide opportunities for development and learning in all areas.
