Primary School PE and Sports Funding
The government has provided additional funding of £150 million per annum for academic years 2013 on wards in order to improve provision of Physical Education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school headteachers.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools and is monitored by our Governing body.
How will we spend our money?

We are extremely well resourced and our teachers are trained to a high standard. Teachers and coaches who deliver PE in Curriculum time, and who facilitate extra curricular sporting opportunities, are passionate about what they do and help our children to achieve in all areas of sport and physical activity.
However, there are always ways we can improve our provision and practice. The additional Sports and PE Funding will help us greatly.
We plan to:
‘We live to learn, laugh and play and enjoy every single day’
