P.E and Sports Premium
What is the Sports Premium?
The government are spending over £450 million on improving physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the 3 academic years 2013 to 2014, 2014 to 2015 and 2015 to 2016. This has been extended to 2020. Schools have been given the control over how the money will be spent within the parameters of strict government criteria.
Here at St. Luke’s we are committed to delivering a wide ranging PE curriculum that is engaging and high in quality.
