COSTON PRIMARY SCHOOL PE AND SPORTS FUNDING PROGRAMME
Part of the Government’s legacy to the successful 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games in London was the new funding arrangement to help improve physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding has to be used to fund improvements to the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision for primary school children so that develop healthy lifestyles.
At Coston we recognise the enormous benefits that PE has on the health and well-being of our children. High quality PE provision not only improves the health and fitness levels of children, it also educates them about the importance of healthy lifestyles as a life- long habit. In addition research provides strong evidence that regular sport has a positive influence on the concentration levels, attitudes and academic achievement.
Our objectives at Coston Primary School:
Ø To promote high quality physical education and physical activity opportunities for the children;
Ø To ensure the children have the opportunity to experience a range of sports and physical activities;
Ø To promote the Healthy School agenda to all children;
Ø To ensure children have appropriate and good quality equipment to participate in a range of sports;
Ø To improve the range of extra-curricular sports activities available for the children.
