PE & Sports Grant



Additional funds have been provided by the government during academic years 2014/15 and 2015/16 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in Primary Schools. This funding is ring fenced and can therefore only be used for this purpose.


Purpose of Funding


Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but have been given the freedom to choose how best to do this.


Milton Park Primary School has decided to use the funding to:


  • Purchase PE equipment, resources and kit
  • Introduce Real PE Primary Programme - scheme of work, resources and training for school staff
  • Fund qualified coaching staff for PE lessons and after school sports
  • Subscribe to North Somerset PE Association (WESPORT) to provide more opportunities for children to take part/compete in a variety of sports.
  • Provide extracurricular activities throughout the year e.g. sailing and archery.
  • Maintain sport facilities.
  • Affiliate with governing bodies such as the RFU, Somerset Cricket and England Netball.


The impact of this provision will be assessed at the end of the 2015/16 academic year.
