The PE and sport premium is a government funding initiative designed to help primary schools improve the quality of PE and sport activities they offer.

A large portion of our funding has been spent on improving our outside environment to enable children to have a variety of physical activities and also through the provision of well trained and experienced coaches delivery high quality PE coaching each week.
