At Bewdley Primary School, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children. Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.
In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport. The funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. As a school we have been allocated £9,500 to improve the quality of PE and sport in school.
Bewdley Primary School ensures high quality sports, PE training and curriculum are a priority across the school. Bewdley Primary School delivers a range of exciting PE experiences, including competitive games and sports, developing children’s learning in and out of school. The funding has been used to develop competitive games within school, competition festivals between local schools at different venues and enhance our sporting after school clubs, using different sporting coaches as well as supporting children’s trips.
