Playing sport helps to keep people healthy and is good for communities. Playing sport at school or in a local club is also the first step to competition at the highest level, which helps improve our reputation as a sporting nation, and contributes to economic growth.
However, often when people leave school they often stop playing sports, which means people can’t fulfil their sporting potential, and can lead to a less healthy lifestyle. We want to get more people playing sport safely from a young age, and help them keep playing sport throughout their life, no matter what their economic or social background.
The PE and sport premium is designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils. Bracken Lane has received a Sports Premium of £8,000 plus and an additional payment of £5 per pupil. Our school must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.
