Primary PE & Sport Premium - #dontcutPE

The health and future wellbeing of the nation’s children and young people is crucial. The Primary PE & Sport Premium is a crucial element in supporting, promoting and delivering the importance of early and positive habits in PE, sport and physical activity.

This week has seen a heavy media campaign using the hashtag #dontcutPE, which has seen many influential figureheads in the sports industry help push for a positive outcome in the continuation of the £320 million package and highlighting the potentially catastrophic consequences if this package is cut just as an activity crisis among young people has worsened dramatically during the Coronavirus pandemic.
