PE and sport premium funding

The government provides additional funding for the provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding is ring-fenced and must only be spent on improving provision of PE and sport in the school.

Croydon Sports Partnership

We are working closely with Croydon Schools Sport Partnership whose aim is to achieve high quality physical education and school sport in all schools, and to enable sport to be used in improving all areas of a pupil’s development. The greater vision is of working in close partnership with schools, associations, community clubs and volunteer organisations to create opportunities for all pupils in Croydon. The excellent links that have already been established are enabling children throughout the Partnership to access a great array of sporting opportunities and to get involved as leaders inspiring younger pupils through sport.
