P.E. and School sports funding



What does it mean?


The Government is determined to secure a significant and lasting legacy from the very successful 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games that were held in London. In order to achieve this and improve the provision of P.E. and sport in primary schools, additional funding of £150 million per annum has been made available for the academic years 2013/4 and 2014/5.


We are delighted that in our school this amounts to £9589  to spend in  2014/2015 on enhancing the provision of P.E. and school sport. Our main aims for funding were:


  • To give children the opportunity to take part in a wide range of sports.
  • To provide higher quality curriculum PE.
  • To take part in more extra curricular sports.
  • To identify children who are not physically active provide a target group for them.
  • To encourage children to take part in more physically active activities at play time and lunch time.
  • To give children  the opportunity to enter competitions against other local schools.
  • To create intra school competitions.
  • To use sport as a positive method to improve behaviour.r


At The Trinity Catholic Primary School we believe that sport plays an important part as it contributes to the health and well-being of our children. Sporting excellence and participation, alongside strong cultural opportunities, go hand in hand with academic standards.
