We use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of physical education, physical activity and sport we offer.

This means that we use the premium to:

  • develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport activities that we already offer.

  • build capacity and capability within our school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining us in future years.

Sep 2020 - July 2021

Our PE Premium projects and their expected impact:
