The Primary Spaces fund will provide outdoor multi-activity areas which can be used both within the curriculum and out of school hours. In addition, staff and volunteers will receive information on how best to use the new facilities.
The fund aims to help schools make good use of relatively small spaces and provide facilities which are low cost but provide a degree of enclosure, colour and innovation that will:
• Inspire physical activity and participation by children.
• Enable and encourage healthy activity.
• Develop the foundations of a sporting habit for life through a great start in PE and sport.
This fund builds on and complements the Government’s Primary PE and Sport Premium.
Sport England anticipates making awards to a maximum of 600 primary schools. Applicants can apply for up to £30,000.
The deadline for applications is March 24 2014 (5pm).
