The PE and Sport Premium Grant is designed to help primary schools improve the quality pf the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. More recently, the government has agreed to extend this funding until at least 2020.
Specific information about how we are going to allocate these funds, and the impact it has on the children attending our school, is provided below. Please note that this information, particularly on the impact of this spending, will be updated throughout the academic year.
We believe that PE and school sport contribute to the holistic development of our children and, through participation, our children build and develop our key values of respect, co-operation, achieve and enjoy. The subject leadership of this area has been prioritised in order to support CPD and to raise both the profile and delivery of PE and sport across the school.

- Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport.
