From September 2013 the Government allocated funding to all primary schools to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. Schools are free to decide how this funding is spent to enhance outcomes for children. In 2021-2022 Leigh Beck is allocated £17,500. Our ambitions are to improve pupil participation in school PE, raise the school attainment in all sports, improve wellbeing through sport and improve teacher subject knowledge and confidence.
Leigh Beck invests a portion of the Primary PE and Sport funding in working in partnership ad collaboration with The Deanes School through the Castle point and Rochford School Sport Partnership to access a variety of students and staff of the school. This allows us to be part of an infrastructure of 50 schools benefitting from guidance and development around high quality physical education, increasing the range and breadth of ‘School Sport’ opportunities and educating young people regarding healthy and active lifestyles.
