Primary PE and Sport Premium
For 2018-2019 the Department of Education has continued to fund Primary Schools to the same level. The focus of this funding continues to be on developing high quality PE and School Sport provision and ensuring it is sustainable beyond the funding.
They have also published their funding guidance for the scheme alongside case studies showing how some schools have delivered a real impact for pupils through sports and physical activity.
The PE and Sport Premium is part of a series of programmes led by the department to improve healthy lifestyles among pupils and tackle childhood obesity. As part of the Childhood Obesity Plan, the Department of Education are working with other departments and agencies – including the Department of Health and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport – to make sure children are healthy and active.
Healthy eating, physical activity and sport not only help tackle childhood obesity, but can also have a positive impact on pupils' behaviour, attendance, concentration and attainment, helping children to reach their potential.
If you or your school would like any guidance, advice, support or a 1-1 visit to your school, on the use of your Primary Sport Premium funding or generically on your PE & School Sport offer, please contact Leicester-Shire & Rutland Sport at the contact details below.
