PE and Sport Funding 2016 – 2017
In June 2013 the Government announced that they were going to provide additional funding to help improve the Physical Education (PE) and sports provision in primary schools. The extra funding is being provided by the Department of Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport. The money goes directly to the Head Teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their pupils and is received as 2 separate payments.
At Coddington Primary the amount expected for 2016/2017 (based on last year’s figure) is £9,768.00. Approximately £4,075 is expected in May 2016 and £5,693 in November 2016.
We strongly believe in using this opportunity to considerably enhance our sports provision at Coddington Primary and the following indicates how this funding is used and how it impacts school:
Alongside all of this, Coddington Primary are active members of the ‘Newark and District Primary Schools Sports Association (NDPSAA) and the ‘Together for Newark’ network and also work with Newark and Sherwood District Council to develop opportunities. This allows teachers to network with each other schools in the local area and for the participation of pupils in local competitions.
