Key Information: The PE and Sports Premium
What is the PE and Sports Premium?
We have a central role to play in supporting all our children to live healthy active lives. This is particularly true of our primary school where the foundations of positive and enjoyable participation in regular physical activity should be established.
Crucial to achieving this is ensuring that pupils have access to at least 30 minutes of physical activity during the school day, alongside high-quality PE provision taught by confident and knowledgeable teachers and opportunities to experience and participate in a wide range of sports and physical activities. PE and sport premium grant funding should be used by schools towards these aims.
How much does our school receive?
The total grant of £16,000 and an additional payment of £10 per child.
