At Foxhills Infant School, we recognise that the impact of a well-rounded PE curriculum to the health and well-being of every child at our school. We believe that engaging and diverse PE teaching can have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all the children in our school.
Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to further develop and sustain our successful inclusive provision through training our staff to deliver in-house quality regular PE sessions, maintaining entry into competitive sports competitions and employing additional sports professionals not only to offer enrichment sporting opportunities for pupils but to develop staff training further.
What is the Sports Premium?
The government is currently continuing to provide funding for primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school will receive £16,000 plus an extra £10 per pupil (year 1 and 2) (2017-18)
