The government-allocated sports funding introduced in 2013 has been of massive help to schools across the country. While it can be a daunting task deciding where to allocate the funds to ensure you comply with the Ofsted regulations, one thing to keep in mind is that anything you spend the funds on must make sustainable improvements to your physical education, sports, and activity curriculum.
Thankfully, revamping your sports playground using innovative playground markings is one of the best uses of sports funding for primary schools. Thermoplastic markings are not only cost-effective, but they are also sustainable and durable outlasting paint tenfold.
Using the sports funding to invest in thermoplastic playground markings also means you won’t have to redesign your playground each year. UniPlay thermoplastic markings help you remain in compliance with the stipulation that states the funds must be used to build capacity and capability in the school and benefit the children now and in future years.
With more and more children suffering from the detrimental effects of a sedentary lifestyle, the sports funding couldn’t have come at a better time. You can help your pupils to remain healthy and active at school by utilising the funding to install fun, thermoplastic playground markings that inspire them to remain active.
There are many benefits of using UniPlay thermoplastic markings including giving your pupils a wide catalogue of sports activities and invigorating games. These games not only help keep the kids physically engaged, but they also inspire mental stimulation.
The government also requires that schools must publish the impact of the funds on pupils’ PE and sport participation. By spending the funds on thermoplastic markings, students are more inclined to spend time on the playground which improves outdoor activity.
Supplement Your Curriculum
