Sports Premium




What is Sports Premium funding?

The Government is providing funding to provide new, substantial primary school sport funding. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school Headteacher to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
The Sports Premium can only be spent on sport and PE provision in school
