PE Funding – Expenditure

Physical Education Funding – Planned Expenditure 2018 – 2019

The Department for Education provides specific physical education (PE) funding to enhance the core PE provision within schools to ensure that pupils are more physically active, thus building confidence, enhancing pupil learning experiences and improving the health and physical well being of children whilst at school to help further improve physical education and outdoor play in England and to prevent childhood obesity and encourage children to lead more active lives, starting at school.

It is part of our school strategy to tackle obesity and support our Healthy School approach, as well as working with Lambeth on mental health programmes to ensure children have the strategies to be confident and healthy, both physically and mentally.

Funding received:

Each school is to receive £16,000 plus an extra £10 per pupil (aged between 5 and 10 years) each year for the next 3 years. St Bede’s funding for sport and PE provision in school:
