P.E. / Sports Premium Funding 2017 - 2018
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 2017-2018 Leigh Beck Infant and Nursery Academy is £18,580. Our ambitions are to improve pupil participation in school PE and sports clubs, raise the school attainment in all sports and participation in local competitions and festivals and to improve teacher subject knowledge and confidence.
Leigh Beck invests a portion of the Primary PE and Sport funding in working in partnership and 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.
