Bill Wiggn MP is delighted Herefordshire schools will receive an extra £697,310 to boost PE lessons.

Bill Wiggin MP said: “I am very pleased our schools are getting this extra boost from the Government to help deliver even better PE lessons.

This money will make such a difference to PE lessons in 79 schools across Herefordshire with awards ranging from Pencombe CofE Primary School receiving £8,235 to Ledbury Primary School receiving £9,750.

With another year of funding still to come for schools in Herefordshire, I am sure the head teachers know exactly where this money would make the most difference.

This is yet another example of how the Government is working to help schools encourage sport and keep our children active as part of the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.”

Herefordshire’s funding allocation is the second of is the second of 3 annual payments worth a total of over £450 million from the Government’s PE and sport premium fund.

Introduced in 2013 the money goes directly to primary school head teachers so that they can decide how best to use it to provide PE and sporting activities for pupils.

Across the country head teachers have already used the funding to recruit hundreds of extra specialist PE teachers, to buy new equipment and to offer a wider selection of sports, and free after-school clubs.

Research has shown that 9 out of 10 schools have already improved the quality of their PE lessons as a result of the funding – and more than 90% reported improvements in children’s health, behaviour and lifestyle.

As a result, figures show that on average primary school pupils are spending more time in PE lessons. Last year pupils spent an average of 122 minutes every week doing PE – up by 13 minutes from the previous year.

Minister for Children and Families Edward Timpson said: “As part of our plan for education, we want all children to get into the habit of playing and enjoying sport in primary school as it can help instil confidence, discipline and determination.

Thanks to our PE and sport premium, primary schools are offering more and better quality sport programmes – and this funding boost will help head teachers go further.

Whether a child is a potential future Olympic champion or a keen amateur like me, I want them all to be given the chance to fulfil their sporting potential.”
