2017 - 2018

The PE and Sports Premium is an amount of money which the government agreed to allocate to schools for the academic years (2013 - 2014 & 2014 - 2015). The funding amount received by schools is based upon the number of children of primary age at the school. The Sports Premium must be used to increase the quality & breadth of PE & Sport provision, and increase participation in PE & Sport.

At Springside Primary School, we strive to promote healthy and active lifestyles and aim to provide sporting opportunities for all our pupils. We welcome the additional funding, which will further enhance our provision and provide additional opportunities for increased participation.
