The Government initiative of funding sporting activities in Primary schools came into affect 2014/2015 academic year.
At Meadow Green we recognise the contribution that PE and sport makes to the health and well-being of children. We believe that a broad and balanced PE curriculum with a range of extra-curricular activities and access to competitive sport can have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and achievement of all our children.
Last year Meadow Green Primary School was given £9,500 funding to enhance the provision of PE and School sport for all of our children.
