What is Primary School Sports Funding?
For a number of years the government has allocated additional extra funding to all primary schools in order to improve PE and Sports provision for all pupils so that they develop pupils’ ability to understand and work towards achieving a healthy lifestyle.
At Middleforth we believe that Physical Education develops pupils’ competence, confidence and skills, and it also helps to promote a positive attitude towards active and healthy lifestyles across a range of areas. It applies to all children, regardless of age, gender, race and faith and is inclusive to children of all abilities. A broad and balanced physical education curriculum is intended to provide pupils with increasing self-confidence in their ability to manage themselves and their bodies and also, to develop their understanding and appreciation of what it means to be healthy. We feel that sports and extra- curricular clubs play and important part in the development of these attributes and in recognition of our work in this area Middleforth CE qualified for the SILVER Sainsbury’s School Games Mark in 2017.
