PE Premium Funding

What is PE Sport Funding?


The Government provides additional funding for physical education (PE) and sport in schools. This funding  is to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision resulting in increased numbers of pupils developing healthy lifestyles, raising their performance levels and engaging in PE and sport.


The additional PE and sport funding allocated to our school from 1st September for the academic year 2016/17 was £9210.
