P.E. and Sport Premium
In March 2013, the Government announced that all Primary Schools would be receiving a Sport Premium allocation to be used to provide, develop and deliver sustainable high quality teaching in school P.E. and sport. We are delighted to be in receipt of this funding as it supports our aim to create a culture that encourages ALL children to be active and enjoy sport and to help foster the aspirations of future Olympians and Paralympians.
