Sports Premium 2018-2019

Summary of proposed spending for 2018-2019 – Physical Education and Sports Premium

Since 2013, the Government has provided schools with additional funding to improve Physical Education and Sport. Schools have the freedom to spend the money received and Cranborne are committed to use this funding to enhance our provision of high quality teaching and learning in PE. Cranborne intend to achieve this within and beyond the curriculum and plan to see improvements in the following areas:
