Glen Park Primary School

Success for all, through learning together

Primary School PE and School Sport Funding

The government is determined to secure a significant and lasting legacy from the very successful 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games that were held in London. In April 2013, the Government announced new funding for physical education (PE) and sport; Glen Park Primary will receive approximately £19500. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

In planning the allocation of this grant, Glen Park Primary has consulted the following Ofsted documents:

“Beyond 2012 – outstanding physical education for all.”

“Inspecting primary school PE and school sport: new funding.”

Below is a summary of ways in which this funding is allocated at Glen Park Primary alongside an evaluation of the impact that it has had upon our pupils lifestyles and health and well-being. Please click on the link below to access these documents:
