PE Sports Grant
At St Leonard’s Church of England Primary Academy we believe PE & Sport plays an important role with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.
We have welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons; alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people. We agree with the Prime Minister’s declaration that this funding will “improve PE and school sport for the youngest pupils and inspire the Olympic and Paralympic stars of the future.”
During 2019 St Leonard’s has been the subject of two case studies by Active Sussex Active Sussex
The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in Academies. For more information on how we intend to spend the sports grant please see the file below.
