PE & SS Funding set to continue for 20202021

Following the Government’s announcement on 5th July 2020 ‘We are delighted to report that the Department for Education (DfE) has confirmed that the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding will continue at £320 million for the 2020/21 academic year.

Importantly, the DfE has also sanctioned any PE and Sport Premium funding from the current academic year (2019-20), that schools were unable to use, as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, can be carried forward to utilise in the next academic year (DFE 5th July 2020).

We are also delighted to inform you that the ‘National Curriculum Outdoors’ books we have been involved in writing which were published last week have received an excellent review from Juliet Robertson who is a well- known internationally for her work in outdoor learning.  

Juliet stated ‘This is a brand-new, set of 5 books about teaching outside. Given the outdoor emphasis as children and staff return to school, it’s a timely publication. It has been a tremendous undertaking by the authors: Deborah Lambert, Michelle Roberts and Sue Waite.

Right now, with the outdoor emphasis recognised as a sensible approach to preventing and reducing transmission rates of COVID-19, this set of books could be the best summer reading you do this year’. (J Robertson Creative Star Learning July 2020)

If you wish to purchase the books they are available directly from Bloomsbury with a 10% discount currently or through the Arena partnership.

Outdoor learning will be vital in schools returning in September and catch up funding can be used for health and wellbeing programmes.
