Due to the success and impact of the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport in April 2013.The funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. It should also be used to encourage and inspire children to enjoy and participate in a healthy and active lifestyle. The 2012 London Olympic and Paralympic games inspired our nation and more recently the 2016 Rio Olympics showed that with the right opportunities we can achieve.
At Pennington we are committed to improving the PE provision and raise achievement for all pupils in sport. We may well produce a future Olympic champion but whether or not, we will provide all pupils with the opportunity to learn skills and keep fit and healthy whilst recognising the importance of teamwork and the enjoyment that can be gained from playing sports. We make sure every child has access to sport outside of the curriculum.
Our PE Governor is Michael Mitchell.
