Sport Premium

What is it?

The government has chosen to invest in Primary School Physical Education and School Sport for 2012-2020. They have done this by offering each primary school £8000 plus £5 per pupil to be spent in any way the school thinks best to improve the teaching and learning of PE and School Sport in their individual school.

What have we done with it?
