PE and Sport Premium

As in previous years, we have been given the Government's ‘PE and Sport Premium’ funding to develop Physical Education and school sports. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. As a school we endeavour to spend the additional funding with the intended outcome being improved provision of PE and sport. We have had the freedom to choose how we feel our money is best spent.
