The Government is committed to supporting schools to continue to develop their PE provision and to encourage children to have an active and healthy life style. The funding has therefore been doubled from 2017 to support this initiative. This funding comes directly to schools who make the decision how to spend this appropriately for their setting.
Schools will spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport. They will have the freedom to choose how they do this but will have to consider and justify their choices in relation to the following categories:
At Broomwood we receive £16,000 and then £10 per pupil. We approximately receive £19,190 in total; however this funding crosses over two financial years so the current statement is based on that.
