Physical Education and Sports Funding 2014-2015


The Government is providing additional funding of £150million per annum for the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to improve provision for physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding, provided jointly by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport is allocated to primary school headteachers.


At Moorside Infant School we provide opportunities for our children to take part in extra sports activities and events. We encourage children to take part and hope to improve these opportunities and increase participation levels, particularly from those children who do not engage in any sporting activities. We will also further develop opportunities for children to develop healthy lifestyles, appreciate their environment and extend positive engagement in their learning.


How we will spend the funding?

In 2014/15 we received £8,360 as our funding allocation which has been spent as follows:
