The government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016 to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. 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.
At Daubeney we are committed to ensuring our children understand the importance of being active, having a healthy lifestyle and enjoy sports and games activities.
During the academic year all KS1 and KS2 children received two hours of physical education a week. KS2 children also have the chance to participate in various organised sports during the lunch hour (Cricket / football / hockey / basketball and athletics). All KS1 and KS2 children had the opportunity to attend after school clubs that were in part funded by the sports funding.
The school also participated in various inter school competitions, funding from the sports budget was used to pay the outside sports specialist who organised and took the School team to these events (football / gymnastics/ hockey / athletics).
