Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

For example, you can use your funding to:

  • hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers
  • provide existing staff with training or resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
  • introduce new sports or activities and encourage more pupils to take up sport
  • support and involve the least active children by running or extending school sports clubs, holiday clubs and Change4Life clubs
  • run sport competitions
  • run sports activities with other schools

How will this look at Culverstone Green Primary School?
