PE and Sport Premium Report 2017/2018

Sport Premium is an amount of money which the government has agreed to allocate to schools until 2020. The funding amount schools receive is based upon the number of children of primary age the school has. The sport premium is to be used to Increase the quality & breadth of PE & Sport provision, and increasing participation in PE & Sport.
