P.E Funding 2022-23


At Arnold View we want to inspire young people to participate in and enjoy physical activity. It is our aim to develop the children’s knowledge, skills and understanding, so that they can perform with increasing competence and confidence in a range of physical activities. 

Physical education promotes an understanding in children of their bodies in action. It involves thinking, selecting and applying skills and promotes positive attitudes towards a healthy lifestyle. Thus we enable them to make informed choices about physical activity throughout their lives. As a member of both the GPSSA and GPSFA we are part of the Next Level and School Games programmes, the school prides itself on providing the very best for its pupils by participating in inter school competitions

The standard of delivery has been supported by PE funding received from the government: The government will continue to provide sports funding to schools during the next academic year to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding has now been confirmed to continue until 2023 and the amount received by schools has doubled from September 2017 enabling us to maintain this level of sports provision going forward.

This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will be allocated to ALL primary schools. The money must be used to improve the provision of P.E. and school sport. To find out more about this funding please follow this link
