PE at Quethiock
"Challenging individuals to achieve their personal best."
At Quethiock CofE School, we believe that PE and Sport plays an integral part in supporting our children to challenge themselves. It is the vision of the teaching team that our young children are constantly being driven to achieve their personal best. This valuable life skill has the potential to change young people's lives for the better.
Following the announcement in June 2013 to improve the provision of PE and Sport in Primary schools; we are committed to using the funding to develop high quality PE lessons, resources and opportunities for every child, across the curriculum and beyond.
'Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and Sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.' (DfE 2013)
Please see the action plan below to see how we are spending the money.
