Primary School PE and Sport Funding 2019-2020

Moorgate Primary School understands and values the importance of physical activity and sport. The children are encouraged to undertake a range of sports and activities both within the Physical Education (PE) curriculum, at playtimes and in extracurricular activities. The Departments for Education, Health and Culture and Media and Sport have allocated ring-fenced funding to support the provision of PE and sport in schools.

In the academic year 2019/20, the school has been allocated approximately £17000. We are, in turn, allocating it in the following way:

  • Professional Development of staff to ensure high quality PE curriculum teaching.
  • Opportunities for children to experience inter-school competitions
  • Providing extra-curricular activities in a broader range of sports, gymnastics and dance, encouraging all children to be involved.
  • Purchasing further games resources to encourage children to be active through developing different sports.
  • Employment of local coaches to work alongside staff and children, providing opportunities for children to have high quality coaching and staff to receive professional development.
  • Providing holistic therapy for pupils.
Over the past year we have used the funding in the following manner:
