Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.


From September 2013, the Government has provided schools with funding to be spent on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. The funding must be spent on improving the provision of Physical Education and Sport for the benefit of pupils, encouraging healthy lifestyles.

- To introduce pupil PE leaders

- To review sports equipment across the school

- To reintroduce sports tournaments during lunchtime for all key stages.

- The daily mile to be introduced to other year groups
