Sport Premium is an amount of money which the government has agreed to allocate to schools until 2020. The funding amount received by schools is based upon the number of children of primary age at the school. The Sport Premium must be used to increase the quality and breadth of PE and Sport provision, and increase participation in PE and Sport.
At Stretton Handley Church of England Primary School, Mr Cooke is the P.E. and Sport Leader with responsibility for developing sport and effective use of Sport Premium Funding. Our school already has an excellent reputation for our Sport and P.E. as we strive to promote healthy and active lifestyles and aim to provide sporting opportunities for all our pupils. We are proud to have achieved Sainsburys Games Mark GOLD for three years. We welcome the additional funding for 2017-18 which will further enhance our provision and provide additional opportunities for increased participation.
