Primary Sports Funding


The government is providing additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is being allocated to primary school head teachers. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.


At St Lawrence we have developed an action plan in order to continue to improve PE provision and raise achievement for all pupils in sport.


Our priorities mean that the funding will:

  • Develop staff expertise in teaching in sports skills through providing additional training and professional development and covering classes to enable teachers to do this.
  • Continue to provide quality coaches for teaching some PE lessons across the school.
  • Increase participation in sports matches and tournaments through links with local schools.
  • Provide resources to enable high quality teaching of sport.
  • Provide opportunities to participate in alternative sports to inspire healthy choices for all pupils.



At St Lawrence school we have always been committed to providing children with excellent sporting provision, with the added funding, we aim to build on this further, ensuring that each child experiences the benefits.
