This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and is allocated to ALL primary schools. The money must be used to improve the provision of P.E. and school sport. To find out more about this funding please follow this link

Our overall aim at Muskham Primary School is to raise standards in P.E. and school sport, increasing the participation and opportunities offered to all our children. We aim to provide higher quality lessons and improved learning for all.
