Physical Education & Sport Grant (PESG)
Total number of pupils on roll (excluding F1) 119
Total number of pupils eligible for PESG 119
Total Amount of Physical Education & Sports Grant £9000


Background & Context of PESG
PESG was introduced from April 2013 so that schools could improve the quality and breadth of their physical and sport education.  Funding is available for the academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/2016

Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding with the expectation that there will be an increased participation by primary aged pupils in PE & Sport so that they develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

From September 2013, inspectors will assess and report on how effectively this funding is being used to improve PE & Sports provision.


Rationale of PESG
Eastwood Village Primary School is committed to enabling all pupils to achieve to the best of their abilities.  As well as adopting healthy lifestyles we want our children to enjoy, regularly participate in and reach the highest sporting performance level they are capable of.
