The government currently provides funding to schools through a Sport Premium Fund. Sports funding can only be spent on sports and PE provision in schools.
The Association for Physical Education suggest that funding is to be used to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer. This may be in a variety of ways. Their suggestions are:
Year 5 children attend weekly swimming sessions at a local pool during the Spring /Summer Terms (terms 5 and 6).
Each year around 15%-20% of the children are complete non-swimmers before the course begins. At the end of the course, they are presented with certificates to show the proficiency level that they have attained.
