The Association for Physical Education (AfPE) and the Department for Education (DfE) recently announced that they are continuing their support to enhance Primary PE for all children across the UK. They are doing this by continuing the Primary Pe and Sport Premium at the doubled rate of £320m for the 2019-2020 academic year!
Beth Tweddle Gymnastics believes that investing in the school workforce and high-quality programmes is one of the most effective ways of ensuring great health and well-being of all school children, as well as improving their overall confidence and personal development.
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE, physical activity and sport they offer.
Take a look below how our Schools Programme meets the AfPE and DfE PE and Sports Premium Funding criteria!
