Manor Infant School understands the value of Physical Education (PE) and School Sport. At Manor Infant School we believe that physical education should provide all children with a variety of opportunities to allow them to enjoy physical activity and to be able to improve their own personal skills and level of fitness through cooperative, competitive and creative activities.
Following the success of the 2012 London Olympics the government is providing additional funding of £150 million to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in 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.
