Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6.
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
This means that they should use the premium to:
- develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
- make improvements now that will benefit pupils joining the school in future year
This year we were awarded the Gold School Games mark for our ongoing commitment, engagement and delivery of competitive school sport in 2017/18.
