Sports Funding


t High Legh, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.

Our Primary School Sport’s Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.

This year 2022-23, High Legh Primary will receive £17,580


Purpose of the funding

Schools will have to spend the sport funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

To enhance our PE and Sport Provision we will use the money in the following way:

  • Hiring specialist PE teachers or qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching PE.
  • Change4Life lunchtime clubs - equipment for this to continue.
  • Paying for professional development opportunities in PE/sport.
  • Providing cover to release primary teachers for professional development in PE/sport.
  • Running sport competitions to increase participation, with Warrington Sports Partnership incorporating the School Games.
  • Buying quality assured professional development modules or material for PE/sport
  • Providing places for pupils on after school sport clubs and residential visits, holiday clubs.
  • Transport costs to events.
  • Enhance the opportunities and develop the range of activities offered by providing a sports week and a variety of activities.
  • Enhance the playground and facilities available to the children at break and lunchtime, by making major changes to the outdoor provision, supporting our desire for 60minutes of physical activity each day.
