The PE and Sports Funding is a government scheme which is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of PE and sports activities they offer to children in schools. Schools receive sports funding based on the number of children in Years 1-6; at Mill Rythe Junior School we are extremely lucky to receive funding for Years 3-6. There are a number of ways the funding can be used to improve the quality of the PE and sports activities in schools.

For example, schools can use your funding to:

  • Hire specialist PE teachers

  • Hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers

  • Provide existing staff with teaching resources to help them teach PE and sport

  • Support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs

  • Run sport competitions or increase pupils’ participation in the School Games

  • Run sports activities with other schools
