As part the ‘Olympic Legacy’, the government provided £150 million to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding was jointly provided by the Department for Education, Health and Culture and Media and Sport. It meant that money goes directly to Primary Schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and P.E.
Schools received £8,000, plus an extra £5 per pupil. The money is only to be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
What is the impact?
As a result, more children are both engaged in and enjoy, sporting activity and physical exercise. Also children are engaged in competitive sport over a wider range of sports and activities thereby having impact upon the children’s health and well-being. There has also been positive impact upon behaviour in the playground through offering a wider range of activities for the children to enjoy.
Oxford Road Community School is committed to ensure children’s health and wellbeing continually improves. We have carefully planned our future expenditure to ensure that resources can be renewed, clubs can continue to be offered to children within our community and the impact of these are reviewed on a yearly basis. As a cluster, alongside Wilson Primary School and Coley Primary School, links have been developed to provide opportunities for competition and joint participation, this has led to an increase in enjoyment and motivation for sports across the cluster. We believe that this will continue the ‘Olympic Legacy’ to sustain, develop and improve our children’s skills and attitudes towards physical activity.
