The Government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/16 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding.
This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
Teachers are expected to teach PE by working with the Sports Development Teacher and/or Schools Sports Partnership coaches in order to upskill their curriculum knowledge and delivery. Planning is shared and rationales for learning is given.
37% of Year 6 pupils, 2017, could swim 25 metres.
