The Multi Academy Trust of Torquay Boys’ Grammar School & Torquay Academy are striving to enhance sporting opportunities & provision for Physical Education, sport & physical activity in local primary schools.
As a result, the ‘Multi Academy Trust Championing Health, Education and Sport’ programme has been developed.
The programme links in directly with other partnerships around Torbay, although you will get a personalised service, tailored to the needs of your particular primary school.
MATCHES addresses the new Sports Premium funding to ensure a sustainable, & personalised, resolution to the changing guidelines & expectations for the delivery of high quality Physical Education to young people.

Are you investing yours wisely?
As you may be aware, the government is providing £150 million per annum for academic years 2013/14 & 2014/15 to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding.
This Sport Premium money is the only current type of funding that is ‘ring fenced’, & is only to be spent on sport & PE provision offered by a school. All schools with primary aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil.
With the new Sports Premium funding, Primary schools will be far more accountable for their delivery of Physical Education & sport:
“Schools will be required to include details about their sporting provision on their school website, alongside their curriculum details, so that parents can compare sports provision between schools, both within & beyond the school day”
