Our School

Sports Premium

The primary school sports premium is used effectively. This is because teachers observe lessons taught by specialist teachers and use this to improve their own skills and practice. The school has increased the number of clubs available and plays a more active and successful part in local sports tournaments.

Sport has the power to change the world......it has the power to inspire

Nelson Mandela, 1918 - 2013 

The government continues to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture and Media and Sport – will be allocated to primary schools.

This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.

Purpose of funding

Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
