At our school we receive PE and Sport Premium Funding to enhance the PE curriculum. For the academic year (2016/17) we received £9,690. This amount is made up of a lump sum of £8,000 with additional funding allocated on a per pupil basis. The money is provided to schools so that they can improve the provision and outcomes for children across the school in the area of sport, physical activity and PE.
Providing a wide and balanced curriculum is at the heart of our curriculum vision at Nightingale. In order to increase pupil engagement with physical activities during the school day ad after school and to widen opportunities for pupils to partake in inter-school competition Nightingale further supplements this funding with additional monetary resources from the main budget.
This committment to furthering pupil involvement in physical activities was refected in the school being awarded the School Games Gold Award. Something the whole school is very proud of.
