Sport Premium


School Sports Funding

The Government is providing additional funding to improve the provision of physical education and sport in Primary Schools. This funding is ring fenced and therefore is only spent on the provision of sport in this school. Schools must spend the money on improving the provision of PE and sport, but we have the freedom to choose how we do this.
