PE and Sports Premium Funding

PE Website

At St Mary's CE Infant School we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. In addition, it is considered that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.

The PE and Sport Premium Spend Impact Report 2020 – 2021

The PE and Sport Premium is part of a government initiative designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils so that they develop healthy lifestyles. Every primary school in the country has been provided with funding to support additional sports provision.

For the academic year 2020-2021 the total amount allocated to St Mary’s CE Infant School was £16,570.
