In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport, to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. Funding has been allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils from 1 September 2013. A typical primary school received about £9,250 annually in the academic years 2013/14 through to 2015/16. Funding will continue for 2017/18
Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
How Shelton is planning to use the funding to improve provision?
Shelton Junior Schools Sport funding budget = £9300
(£8000 + £1300 (£5 per child on roll))

JH, with the aid of teachers have executed dance high quality dance modules across the school resulting in multiple performances such as The Nutcracker (year 3) Still Life At The Penguin Café (year 4), The Celebration Of Dance Festival (year 5) and The Show (year 6).
The profile of gymnastics, similar to dance, has been significantly raised with the roll out of the BAGA, British Gymnastics awards across year 4, 5 and 6. Where children have to learn, develop and master skills aesthetically- in order to achieve certain stages.
