PE & Sports Premium


PE and Sport Premium Funding at Muskham Primary School 2017 -2018

Muskham Primary School is committed to providing excellent sporting facilities and opportunities for all its pupils. With hard courts and a Multi-Use Games area available, the school offers a variety of physical activities such as athletics, football, netball, basketball, cricket and tag rugby. The school actively competes in community fixtures and has recently been awarded a bronze school games kitemark.

The school commits funds from the main school budget to supporting sports and also uses Government funding, used to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding has now been confirmed to continue until 2020 and the amount received by schools is anticipated to double from September 2017. This funding is provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport and will be 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 our children. We aim to provide higher quality lessons and improved learning for all.
