PE and Sport Premium Funding – 2014/2015

Part of the school budget is a sports grant. In 2014/2015, we received £8225. We spend this money on membership of the local sports partnership which provide coaches in various sports weekly, in funding an after school sports club, in the necessary equipment, and in contributing to the cost of the school minibus. So far the funding has enabled our children to take part in more PE and sporting activities; it has given the children the opportunity to reach higher levels in PE and it has supported teachers in their professional development.
