As part of the ‘Olympic Legacy’, up until the academic year 2019/2020, the Government is making available to all schools a sum of money annually to allow them to continue to develop sports provision within school and to help schools increase pupil participation in sporting activity. This money presently equates to £8000 per school per yer plus an additional £5 per child. For our school this means approximately £8,850 per year.
At Willow Brook Primary School, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. In addition, it is considered that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.
This provision in PE is constantly under review and is monitored by Miss Johnston (PE subject leader) as part of our routine school monitoring processes.
Below are details of how the funding was spent during the last academic year and also our plans for the year ahead.
