PE & Sport
The Government is providing additional funding of £150 million per year to improve the provision of PE and sport in primary schools. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health & Culture, Media and Sport, and will see the money going directly to primary schools for them to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all of their children. At Gaskell, we receive £9215 per year to spend on improving sport and PE provision in our school.
At Gaskell Community Primary School we recognise the valuable contribution that Sport and PE make to the health and well-being of our children. We believe that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extracurricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children. Our Governors agree that the funding must be used so that all children benefit regardless of their sporting ability. As a result, we employ our full-time specialist PE and Sports Teacher, Mr Naylor to deliver high-quality PE lessons and a vast range of sporting opportunities.
