Sports Funding


During the financial year 2015/2016 every school in the country has been given extra funding from the government to improve Physical Education in schools. The government saw this happening in a number of ways: the money could be used to give teachers and teaching assistants more training in teaching PE; specialist sports coaches could be brought in to help increase the skill levels of staff in delivering PE; money could be spent on facilities and equipment for PE and sport in school; more children would take part in PE, therefore reducing obesity levels in children and promoting healthier lifestyles. This money, £8000 per school, plus some extra depending on the number of children in your school, was initially for one year but has now been extended for a further 4 years.

At Lons Infant School we receive an amount of money to raise participation in sports, competitions and encourage healthy lifestyles. We have decided to spend the money in the following ways:

  • collaboration with 3 local schools to fund a sports coach 1 day per week per school providing lesson delivery, staff training, lunchtime and after school clubs.
  • membership to the school sports partnership
