Primary Sports Funding

Planned use of Sports Funding 2019-20  

The Department for Education has confirmed that it will fund the Primary PE and Sport Premium for the 2019/20 academic year. A total of £320 million will again be made available to primary schools in England to improve the quality of PE and sport. It is expected that further details will be published by the department soon.  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 2018/19

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 Teacher 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.
