The Government announced a renewed package of funding for physical education (PE) and school sport. Through a new ‘Sport Premium’ the Government is providing £150 million in each of the next two years to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools.
This funding will be ring fenced and allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with a dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Funding will be allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism.
Over the year each child will participate in games, athletics and gymnastics lessons.
Our aim is that all children leave Sacred Heart at the end of Year 6 able to swim 25 metres and be able to perform a safe self-rescue.
As a new school sport will play a prominent part in the life of the school. We have superb sporting facilities and great opportunity to expand the development of sport at all levels.
