PE and Sport Premium

Government statement

‘The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games gave us a once in a lifetime opportunity to inspire the nation to enjoy sport.  The Government is determined to secure a significant and lasting legacy from the Games. Developing an enjoyment of sport and physical activity, and promoting a healthy lifestyle in children from an early age, are vital aspects of that’. 


To support this, in March 2013, the Prime Minister announced a cross-Government programme providing significant additional funding for primary schools.  Every state-funded school in the country with primary-aged pupils receives additional funding from an overall allocation per year, ring-fenced for sport and physical education (PE).


Between April 2018 and March 2019 we will receive £17,710.   


Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
