SPORTS FUNDING

Sports Funding- What is it? The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 & 2015 to 2016 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school headteachers. 

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. 

Purpose of funding- Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Dave Moss: Sporting Influence

We recently acquired the services of David Moss as part of our sports funding allocation from the government and he has already begun work in school with Derwent Class (Year 4).

David is an excellent P.E specialist with many years’ experience in teaching and leading P.E to a wide range of age groups. He has already worked closely with the school since November and has begun to get to know the children and staff.

David will continue to work with all children and staff at some point during the year to ensure every child will benefit from the sports funding. He will be involved in team teaching with our staff during P.E sessions and David will start his programme for P.E in January at the start of the Spring term.

Further details of the sporting opportunities available to children will be given to you throughout the year.

If you would like further information about the work he has undertaken, please see his website http://www.sportinginfluence.com/  or alternatively come and see me if you'd like a chat about this new initiative.
