School Sports part 4

Education Secretary Michael Gove has set out the Coalition Government’s  approach on school sports. The Department will pay school sport partnerships for the full school year to the end of the summer term 2011 at a cost of £47 million. This will ensure the partnerships and their service can continue until the end of the academic year. They were originally due to lose all their funding from the end of next March.

A further £65 million from the Department’s spending review settlement will be paid to enable every secondary school to release one PE teacher for a day a week in the school year 2011/12 and in 2012/13. This will allow PE teachers to promote pupils’ participation in a range of PE and sporting activities and further embed competitive sport in schools across the country.
