Since 2013, the Government has provided schools with additional funding to improve Physical Education and Sport. Schools have the freedom to spend the money received and Cranborne are committed to use this funding to enhance our provision of high quality teaching and learning in PE. Cranborne intend to achieve this within and beyond the curriculum and plan to see improvements in the following areas:

  • Engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
  • The profile of PE and sport across the school
  • Confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • Experience a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • Participation in competitive sport

  • Amount of funding received
  • How the money has been spent
  • Impact the funding has had (whole school impact)
  • Sustainability of improvements
