Through a new 'Sport Premium' the Government is providing £150 million in each of the next two years to support the delivery of PE and sport in primary schools. This funding is being allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Funding is being allocated through a lump sum for each school and a per-pupil top-up mechanism.
This is what we have been doing.
Children in Years 1 - 6 have been enjoying the experience of dance over the last weeks. We have bought in the expertise of a dance teacher using the funding from the Sports Premium. Staff have had the opportunity to observe the lessons being taught with a view to gaining inspiration for their dance lessons. The children have fully enjoyed the lessons and are keen to continue dancing in 2014!
