Primary schools in England have been receiving additional funding since 2013 to support sustainable improvements to the provision of P.E. and sport. This government funding can only be spent on P.E. and sport in primary schools with the aim to encourage and develop healthy, active lifestyles.
At Leighton, we support pupils with developing their enthusiasm towards physical activities and sport. As a school, we recognise the importance of encouraging pupils to be fit and active.
Physical activity, social and emotional wellbeing and educational attainment have always been important to us as a school and we continue to prioritise physical activities.
Our aim is to continue instilling sporting values in our pupils, encouraging fair play, communication, respect for others and resilience.
Upon our return to school, physical activity remains a priority as we support the pupils to recover from the impact of Coronavirus.
