At Graveley, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of our children. We believe that a varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular activities contribute to their holistic development and through participation, our children build and learn more about our key values such as: confidence, teamwork, attentiveness, motivation and perseverance.
What is the Sports Premium?
The Government has provided funding of £150 million per annum since 2013/14, to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. 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. Each school, for the 2019/20 academic year, will receive £16,000 plus an extra £10 per pupil (in year 1-6) – here at Graveley that will mean around £16,800.
