At Forest-of-Teesdale Primary School we believe that sporting activities play a vital part in promoting social development, healthy lifestyles and self confidence in our pupils. We want all children to enjoy sporting activities and continue to engage with these throughout their lives.
From September 2013 the government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013-14 and 2014-15 to improve PE provision and sport in all primary schools. Following the General Election, the government increased funding to allow the scheme to continue until 2020. This funding provided jointly by the Department for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is allocated to primary head teachers and is ring fenced and can only be spent on provision of PE and Sport in school.
PE and sport is high priority and we have a range of provisions in place throughout the school day and after school. Our aim is to maintain the quality and quantity of sports events and after school clubs, continue to participate in intra and inter school competitions, as well as to raise the opportunities for pupils to try different activities whilst increasing participation in physical activities. Through sports and physical activities we aim to facilitate pupils making healthy choices on a daily basis in order to have a positive impact on their physical and mental well-being. We are working to give our children a solid grounding in sports whilst raising their understanding of the crucial role sports activity has in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
