Sports premium


What is ‘Sport Premium’?
In April 2013 the Government announced new funding of £150 million for Physical Eduction (PE) and Sport, often referred to as ‘Sport Premium’. This funding is to be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.

We are proud of the current PE provision at our school and the extra-curricular opportunities that we provide for our pupils.
