PE and Sports Premium Funding

From September 2017 our PE and Sports premium funding allocation was doubled to £17,140.  This money is intended to be used by schools to promote sports and good health for all children.  Funding each year runs from April 1st to April 1st however it is a requirement that the PE and Sports Funding statement runs from September to September.  With this in mind both this year and last year's funding statements are published below.
Funding for the Year 2021 to 2022 has now been confirmed and a new funding statement will be published in September.

  5. Supported whole school improvement actions on well being and mental health.
