PE and Sport Premium
What is the Sports Premium?
Sports education is very important to us, so we devote a lot of time to it, because we want to develop our pupils not only as advanced writers, scientists, mathematicians, geographers, artists or linguists, but also as athletes.
The Department for Education (DfE) are spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over 3 academic years. The funding was first issued for the academic year 2013/2014 and it has continued and has extended beyond the 3 years. The funding will be allocated directly to primary school’s to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all pupils.
