Sport Development Funding

Beeston Rylands receives £8,792 per year to improve provision for PE in sport within the school. This money is from the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and has been ‘ring-fenced’ which means it can only be spent on sport provision and not on any other areas in the school. At Beeston Rylands we strongly believe that if children can be engaged in sport at an early age that this engagement can last a lifetime. Sport encourages our young children to choose a healthy, athletic lifestyle and at this age we can provide the children with lots of opportunities to try a variety of sports.


We can use this money to:

Hire specialist P.E. teachers/qualified sports coaches to work alongside primary teachers when teaching P.E.

Provide new or additional Change4Life sports clubs

Pay for professional development opportunities

Pay for cover to release teachers for development

Run sports competitions

Buy schemes of work/development modules or materials for P.E./sport

Provide places for pupils at an afterschool club and/or holiday club


For detailed information on how the funding has been allocated and the effect of this funding on pupils' PE and sport participation and attainment please download the Sports Development Funding document and the Sports Impact Report Document below.
