The PE and sports premium is jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will see money going directly to primary headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
For 2017-2018, each school will receive £16,000 plus an extra £10 per pupil. Here at Chalfont Valley, that will mean £16,990 for 2017-18. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
At Chalfont Valley E-Act Primary Academy we recognise the importance of PE to the health and wellbeing of our children.
We also value the impact that high quality teaching of PE and the participation in extra-curricular activities can have on children’s concentration and attainment.
Due to the sports funding provided by the government we have been able to employ a sports coach. He is working alongside the teachers to deliver high quality P.E lessons as well as providing a wide range of after school sports clubs, both for team and individual sports.
