Sports Premium Funding
What is Sport Premium? Sport Premium is funding allocated to schools by central government.
The funding amount schools receive is based upon the number of children of primary age on roll at the school. Sport Premium is to be used to increase the quality and breadth of PE & Sport provision; increasing participation in PE & Sport and enhancing the skills of teachers to deliver high quality PE lessons.
At Mount Pleasant Primary School, we are committed to providing high quality P.E. and sport to all of our children.
