What is the Sports Premium?
The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2016/17 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding.

School attendance continues to be strong, and the basic values of sportsmanship translate well into the classroom, where children are able to work as part of a team.
