PE Funding

PE- Sports funding 2021- 2022

The government continues providing additional PE & Sport funding to continue improving provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

This year has its own very real and concerning issues when it comes to the physical wellbeing of all our children. We have observed very poor coordination and deterioration in both fine and gross motor skills. Children being forced to stay at home and limited access to outdoor space and provision has led to many unforeseen difficulties. Upon return to school, pupils have had many more accidents in the playground. They have been tripping over their own feet, running at super speed with little consideration for their own and others health and safety.

Simon Marks Jewish Primary School is committed to ensuring our children understand the importance of being active, having a healthy lifestyle and enjoy sports and games activities. Here are some of the things we spent our allocation on.
