Government guidance for spending sports funding
The Government currently provides additional funding to all primary schools each year to improve the provision of Physical Education (PE) and Sport. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.This funding is jointly provided by the departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and is to be spent on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. For 2019/2020 we have received is £16400. 

Our vision is that all children leaving Manifold Church of England Aacdemy are physically literate and have the knowledge, skills and motivation to equip them for a healthy lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport. In addition, it is considered that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.

We believe that the money must be used so that all children benefit regardless of their sporting ability. It's important that we use this money wisely. We will continue to place a high priority on our PE provision and, as such, have invested in additional staffing/coaching and resources to further enhance the curriculum.

Our Sports Funding allocation will enable us to continue and extend our provision through entering into more competitive sports competitions and by training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE sessions.
