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 £18,510 funding to enhance the provision of PE and School sport for all of our children. This was utilised along with funding tht was carried forward from th 2019-20 and 2020-21 funding allocations that was carried forward due to Covid restrictions and impact on planned provisions as detailed in our sports premium spend document attached below.
Below is a summary of provision put in place and its impact.
