Primary PE and Sport Premium will continue for the 2019-2020 academic year!
Beth Tweddle Gymnastics are delighted to hear that the Primary PE and Sport Premium will continue, at the doubled rate of £320m!
Beth Tweddle Gymnastics are delighted to hear the Association for Physical Education (afPE) and the Department for Education (DfE), are continuing their support to enhance Primary PE for all children across the UK, and are further increasing their dedication by increasing funding available.
afPE’s CEO, Sue Wilkinson MBE said:
“Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity are tools that make a significant contribution to whole school improvement… We know that the difference this funding has made to the physical and emotional well-being of children and young people is having an impact.”
afPE’s Chair, Michael Critchon added:
“There has been much upskilling of the workforce hence higher quality and diverse experiences for pupils in PE lessons and enrichment programmes. Pupils have been offered a wider and inclusive range of activities and sports to engage and excite them, thus increasing participation and improving self-esteem, confidence and well-being.… Many schools have introduced new activities [such as gymnastics]that have appealed to those who don’t necessarily take part enthusiastically in the more ‘traditional’ activities and pursuits.”
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.
Beth Tweddle Gymnastics runs the Schools Programme, where over 200 schools across the North West have joined Beth Tweddle and the team for their school gymnastics, and many more are set to join this academic year.
