PE and Sport Premium
The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding, provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, is being allocated to primary school head teachers. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.
At the Riverside Federation we believe that sports play an important role in promoting social inclusion, healthy lifestyles and self-confidence. Our aim is to maintain the quality and quantity of sports, as well as to raise opportunities for pupils to try different activities whilst raising participation numbers. Furthermore, through sports and physical activity we aim to develop a greater awareness about dangers such as obesity, smoking and other such activities that can have detrimental impact upon pupil health and well-being.
We are all working together to give the children a solid grounding in sport, whilst also raising their understanding of the vital place of physical activity within a healthy lifestyle. The Sports Premium Allocation will be used to develop pupil’s lifestyles and physical wellbeing. Our sports opportunities are inclusive and open to all pupils.
