Primary Sports Funding

Planned use of Sports Funding 2018-19  

In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of. Funding received by Exeter House School will continue to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision predominantly in the primary department but also for the whole school. The school will provide additional funds to enable all students up to the age of 19 to enjoy greater opportunities.

Impact of support in 2017/18

The school continued to use the Sports Premium to improve the quality, quantity and breadth of PE across the school by employing a Specialist Sports Coach to deliver PE to all students. The PE specialist built upon the excellent progress made previously to maximise participation and engagement by continuing to find new ways to deliver sport to a diverse group of students, some of whom have significant physical and sensory impairments in an interesting and creative way.
