PE and Sports Premium
Playing sport helps to keep people healthy and is good for communities. Playing sport at school or in a local club is also the first step to competition at the highest level, which helps improve the United Kingdom's reputation as a sporting nation, and contributes to economic growth.
But when people leave school they often stop playing sports, which means people can’t fulfil their sporting potential, and can lead to a less healthy lifestyle. The Government want to get more people playing sport safely from a young age, and help them keep playing sport throughout their life, no matter what their economic or social background.
At Dymchurch Primary School we want to ensure our children enjoy PE and provide a variety of ways to support them to achieve this!
The Sports Premium and Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding from the Government, provided to schools to help develop sports provision and support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include children who are entitled to free school meals, those looked after by the local authority and the children of armed forces personnel.
All schools are required to report on the amount of funding received and how this is being used.
