Sports grant

The government has given extra funding to schools to be spent on sport in school. The aim is to increase sport provision for children and also to improve the quality of the provision they receive​.

PE and school sport play an important part in the life of Holly Park. We believe that PE plays an important part in the holistic development of our children and through this they learn more about values such as respect, co-operation, team spirit, friendship, courage, determination etc


  • To use the Sports Grant to raise the outcomes for the children by ensuring that each pupil has access to high quality PE provision and that they engage in regular physical activity.
  • To improve teacher subject knowledge in PE
  • To develop a vision that recognises that by the time each child leaves Holly Park they will have become positive in their approach to physical activity, achieved personal success and developed an attitude that allows them to have the confidence to try new experiences through the next stages of their life.
  • To use the resilience learned through playing sport in their wider school life and on into their adult  lives and to develop the desire to be active, healthy adults.
