Sports Funding

Vision Statement

Our school recognises the contribution that high quality PE, a healthy lifestyle and sporting opportunities can make to each and every child in terms of their overall confidence and development.

Our vision is to improve and increase the quality and quantity of PE provision and extra-curricular activities, including competitive sport; recognising how physical activity can enhance pupils’ attainment physically, socially and mentally.

At Grazeley Primary School, our physical activities programme aims to ensure that all pupils have the opportunity to develop their fundamental skills and competence in a wide range of physical activities, preparing them and enabling them to remain active beyond their school years.

The Government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/2014, 2014/2015 and 2015/16 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding in order to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to schools to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision for PE and sport in schools. We will be held accountable for how we have used the additional funding to support pupils progress and participation in PE and school sport.
