The PE and Sport Premium

The legacy of the London Olympics 2012 saw the introduction of the Primary School PE and Sports Funding which is focused on improving provision of PE within primary schools.

Historically Barmby Moor has always made a strong commitment to PE, which is evident in the continued membership of the East Riding School Sport Partnership and Youth Sport Trust and also through the wide range of out of school activities and involvement in competitive sport.

At Barmby Moor we have a strong belief that all children should be given the opportunity to participate in a wide variety of sports and sporting competitions and activities. We run a wide range of after-school sports activities and we employ specialist coaches to provide extra-curricular enrichment sessions, all of whom have links to local sports clubs.

At Barmby Moor, we are also commited to the health and well being of the pupils in our care and believe that sport and physical activity is not just about being competitive. By keeping fit, children become healthier both physically and mentally; therefore, we believe that sports premium funding should also be used to encourage children to take part in non-competitive health related activities. This will ensure that children possess the tools to lead healthier lives in future.

The PE & Sport Premium provides ring fenced money to primary school headteachers to improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. The funding is currently with £150 million per year and is provided jointly by the Department for Education, the Department of Health and the Department for Culture, Media and Sport.

Prime Minister David Cameron announced in February 2014 that the Government have committed to funding for the Primary PE and Sport Premium to 2020.
