Physical Education and Sport Premium for primary schools
Financial Year 2021 to 2022
Physical activity has numerous benefits for children and young people’s physical health, as well as their mental well-being (increasing self-esteem and emotional well-being and lowering anxiety and depression), and children who are physically active are happier, more resilient and more trusting of their peers. Ensuring that pupils have access to sufficient daily activity can also have wider benefits for pupils and schools, improving behaviour as well as enhancing academic achievement.
The PE and sport premium has been awarded to help primary schools in making additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, physical activity and sport offered through their core budgets. It is allocated directly to schools, so we have the flexibility to use it in the way that works best for our pupils.
A detailed report on how we have utilised our grant within this school is attached here, called Evidencing the impact of Primary PE and Sports premium grant.
