PE and Sports Grant
The government is providing additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools.
Purpose of funding
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Oliver Goldsmith School is using the funding to support the following areas:
- Support and engage the least active children in our school.
- Support more able pupils develop their abilities and skills in PE and sport.
- Develop stronger links with Kingsbury High School to access their PE expertise and facilities.
- Pay for professional development opportunities for teachers in PE and sport.
- Provide cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE and sport.
- Run and take part in sport events and increase pupils’ participation in local competitions.
- Purchase high quality equipment to enhance the current provision at the school.

Y6 Sports Leaders in Action...
"As a visitor to the school, I found myself in the KS2 playground swinging my arms, marching, doing heel kicks and stretches, and all inspired by the year 6 sports leaders. Collectively they had put together a warm up routine and invited all the children who had arrived early to school to take part. One or two teachers had ventured out too. Judging by the smiles on the faces of the children this idea was well received and it certainly helped ‘wake them up’.
With the government encouraging children to adopt more healthy and active lifestyles it was great to see a school exploring the idea of an early morning work-out."
