The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games gave an opportunity to inspire the nation to enjoy sport. The government is determined to secure a significant and lasting legacy from the games, and to develop children’s enjoyment of sport and physical activity from an early age.
Sport should be an important part of any school. Great schools have long known that sporting excellence and participation, alongside strong cultural opportunities, go hand in hand with high academic standards.
Schools, teachers and sporting bodies all agree that particular support is required for primary schools. As a result the Prime Minister has announced £300m funding over 2 years for primary school PE and sport.
