Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.


Sports Premium Funding


We have spent most of the money we got from the government to improve P.E. in schools on a sports coach who has been up-skilling our staff whilst at the same time teaching our children.

We also spent some money on having floodlights installed on the playground so we can continue sports clubs throughout the winter, weather allowing. In the past, our Netballers seemed to be able to see in complete darkness, rather like bats!
