Schools have a central role to play in supporting all children and young people to live healthy active lives. This is particularly true of primary school where the foundations of positive and enjoyable participation in regular physical activity should be established.

Primary PE and Sport Premium (PPSP) funding was introduced in 2013 as one of a range of measures aimed at improving the health and wellbeing of young people. PPSP funding is ring-fenced and consists of an annual payment of £16,000 per school, plus an additional £10 per pupil. Its purpose is making sustainable and additional improvements to the quality of their PE and sport offering

Crucial to achieving this is ensuring that pupils have access to at least 30 minutes of physical activity during the school day, alongside high-quality PE provision taught by confident and knowledgeable teachers and opportunities to experience and participate in a wide range of sports and physical activities. PE and sport premium grant funding should be used by schools towards these aims.

We are thrilled to have been awarded a Sportsmark Platinum Award in recognition for our long term commitment for excellence in PE lessons in school and in our squads, sports clubs and fixtures against other schools.
