Sports Funding

As a school, we receive funding from the Government to support and enhance PE and physical activity throughout our school. We use sport and exercise to support many different areas for our children to give them the opportunity to live healthy and active lives. We aim to give them a positive experience of sport, well-being and physical activity. Together we aim to inspire our children to use sport and physical activity to build into their future a lifetime of participation.
