Call for commitment to PE and Sport Premium funding

Sport and Physical Education have an essential role to play to the wellbeing of young people. As we start the transition to a new normal, we can agree we need to do all we can to help young people reconnect and recover from events in recent months. 

Whilst in lockdown, almost one in three young people have been less active. Sports stars have come together to urge the government to guarantee its primary school sport funding.  The PE and Sport Premium has in recent years supported primary schools in England to improve PE and sport, getting more young people active and improving their health and wellbeing. 

As schools ability to plan their support for young people's physical and mental health is at risk, we ask that schools in Waltham Forest get involved and commit to young people's wellbeing by joining the campaign.
