Sports Funding

School Sports Funding
  • In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (P.E.) and sport. The funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. 

 

  • We have greatly benefited from the new primary school sports funding. The impact of provision can be seen from the positive response from the children, staff and parents, as well as awards received. 

 

Here are some of the children’s comments:

'I loved the athletics competition because my adrenalin was pumping and it was very exciting! I was very proud we came second and it was fun competing against other schools.'

'I enjoyed dance. I have learnt different things and I am a better dancer. I loved the music, too.'
 
I loved hockey club so much that I decided to join Gillingham Anchorians Hockey Club. I wanted to keep learning and keep having fun!
 

Our main uses of the available funding

At St Margaret’s at Troy Town School we value the impact high quality P.E. provision can have on the children in our care. We have always tried to encourage participation in sport by providing after school and lunch time clubs, as well as a broad and engaging P.E curriculum.

 

  • This year we have continued buying into the Greenacre Sports Partnership. This has help used to deliver high quality PE and School Sport, through a variety of programmes that enrich staff knowledge and provide new experiences for all pupils. We will work together to provide appropriate opportunities for further development and participation in PE and School Sport.

 

  • We have also further enhanced the teaching of our P.E lessons by hiring sports coaches. They have helped facilitate the teachers in lessons and provided us with fresh new approaches to delivering lessons in school.
