Sports Premium to continue

Good news all round

£320 million PE and Sport Premium will help schools prioritise physical activity with education, as schools build back better from the pandemic.

“Primary school children in England will benefit from higher quality PE lessons and better sport opportunities, the Education Secretary has announced today.

Backed by a £320 million investment, the PE and Sport Premium will encourage children to play more sport, increase their social skills, and improve their physical activity after lockdown. Schools will also be able to improve the quality of their teaching and make longer-term, sustainable changes to their lessons.”

At Fitz HQ, we were delighted to hear this news, not least because primary schools can now access the programme without having to dig into existing budgets, which is a step in the right direction – or should we say a skip, leap and jump in the right direction?
