Primary School Sports Funding 2018/19

By Brook Valley Primary School Sports Funding Allocation for 2018/19 was £17,720. This had to be spent on improving the provision of PE and sports within schools but Headteachers have the freedom to choose how they do this.

The focus for this year was to build on the success of previous year’s mentoring and CPD, to continue to encourage our children to develop a sustained interest in sport, physical exercise and healthy living, and to continue to enhance general PE provision.
