The government are spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016. This funding will be allocated directly to primary headteachers.
Schools can choose how they use the funding, and are accountable by being required to publish the following on the school website: details of how we intend to spend (or will spend) the PE and sport grant and detail about the impact this funding has on pupils’ PE and sport participation and attainment.
Since September 2013, Ofsted inspections report on PE and sport provision and on how schools spend their additional funding.

Sainsbury’s School Games Mark GOLD
The Sainsbury's School Games Mark is a Government led awards scheme launched in 2012 to reward schools for their commitment to the development of competition across their school and into the community. Schools in England are able to assess themselves across bronze, silver and gold levels of the Mark. We are thrilled to announce that following a successful application, we have been awarded Gold School Games Mark.
The award measures all aspects of Sport and PE within school, including our provision of extra-curricular activities through after school clubs, the opportunities we provide for students to develop leadership skills, the way we promote sport and competition to parents and the local community and the opportunities we provide our students to compete at inter-school competitions.
I would especially like to express a huge thank you to Mrs Udberg as our PE subject leader, for her dedication, enthusiasm and constant passion to develop all aspects of PE, sport and after-school clubs within our school.
