Sports Premium

From September 2013 the government has allocated funding directly to primary schools to support the provision of quality Sport/PE.  Each school will receive £8000 plus a further £5 per pupil (as per the school January census).  It is important that this money is used wisely, so that we get the maximum impact for our children.
