Lady Elizabeth Hastings' CE VA Primary School

Sports Premium

The Government is currently committed to providing funding to schools specifically targeted at supporting the development of PE in schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – is allocated to primary school head teachers. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools. At Lady Elizabeth Hastings’ we receive approximately £16,000 annually.
