Make your PE and Sport Premium Funding really count

Published on 25/10/2017

Through our Active Schools Partnership in collaboration with the Youth Sport Trust we’re on a mission to champion the benefits of being an active school. The government’s confirmation to double the PE and Sport Premium funding provides an added boost to help achieve this goal and we’re keen to share the ways you can use this ring-fenced funding to invest in an active school.
Commenting on the funding decision the Youth Sport Trust made the following statement, which we at ESPO fully support:
The government’s confirmation of the PE and Sport Premium funding doubling presents the best chance we have in a generation to really transform PE and harness its potential to improve children’s wellbeing. Children’s formative experience of PE at primary school has an impact which can last a lifetime. Get it right and we will transform the life chances of a generation. Get it wrong and too many children will continue to miss out on the benefits that physical activity brings to their wellbeing and achievement.
Through working with the Youth Sport Trust we recently launched an online portal giving schools free access to solutions and resources that can help tackle the common problems schools currently face around physical activity and wellbeing for their pupils.
Log on to the portal to find a wealth of ideas and inspiration including unique training packages put together by the Youth Sport Trust and essential sporting equipment available from ESPO.
