Sports/PE Premium


Sports Premium 2019-20


The government is continuing to provide additional funding in order for schools to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.  

We received £17,180 for the 2018-19 Academic Year and this funding must be used to:

  • Develop or add to the PE and sport activities that our school already offers.
  • Build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining our school in future years.

We are using this fund to:

  • Help to engage all pupils in regular physical activity
  • Raise the profile of PE and sport across the school to aid whole-school improvement
  • Increase the confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • Allow all pupils to experience a range of sports and activities
  • Increase participation in competitive sport
