Primary PE and Sport Premium confirmed for 2021/22
funetics is pleased to share the FUNtastic news from the Department of Education that it has confirmed that the primary PE and Sport Premium will continue for the next academic year (2021/22).
The premium will continue at £320 million next year and schools will be able to carry over underspends until July 2022, to prioritise children’s activity as part their recovery.
With more and more coaches, providers and clubs joining the funetics programme, and Covid restrictions hopefully lifted next month or for the return of the new academic year in September; the funetics team couldn’t be more ready and excited to help primary school children to be active and learning; as well supporting the school to make the most of this funding, and to demonstrate the powerful role of school sport and PE in improving the health and well-being of young children.
funetics is here to help your school with an all year long athletics programme or with shorter term programmes such as our Sports Day ’21 and our Summer Holiday Camps.
