PE and Sports Premium Statement
The DFE (Department for Education) continues to provide all primary schools with additional funding to increase participation in sports/games activities.
The dedicated ‘PE/Sports Premium’ grant was announced in March 2013 and began from September 2013. The funds go direct to school budgets so that individual schools can decided how best to use it to provide high quality sports and coaching activities for pupils. This year East Acton Primary will receive £17,590 in PE/Sports Premium funding.
Impact of PE/Sports Premium
Sports games and PE have been a priority area at East Acton Primary for many years. Many pupils live in homes with limited access to outdoor space. We see it as a priority to give pupils access to a range of quality provisions.
• PE activities are led by skilled staff catering for a range of games, skills, dance and gymnastics.
• Majority of pupils from Reception – Year 6 engage and participate in lunchtime sports led by staff.
• Participation in sports competitions with neighbouring schools.
