Primary Sports Funding

As part of the ‘Olympic Legacy’, the Government is investing £150 million per year for the academic years 2013-14 and 2014-15 to improve PE and sport provision in primary schools.

Schools must spend the funding to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils, but they are free to choose the best way of using the money.  Since September 2013, Ofsted inspections have reported on how this money is spent.

PE Vision for Carrington

PE is essential in enabling children to develop a lifelong enjoyment of movement, and contributes to an understanding and awareness of the importance of an active lifestyle for physical and mental health. Through PE teaching, we enable children to build self-confidence and develop their self-esteem, as well as equipping them with the skills they need lead a healthy life-style.

The PE curriculum offers the opportunity for all children to develop the skills needed to excel in a broad range of physical activities in order to become physically confident in a way which develops their health and fitness. It also provides opportunities to compete in sport, and other activities, which helps to build confidence and embed values such as fairness and respect.  We will also encourage children to break down barriers and to challenge stereotypes linked with sport.

Children will learn a broad range of skills, enabling them to engage in a range of sports and activities to support their health, fitness and wellbeing.

Details of how we have spent the funding are available in the documents below.
