Keeping Local Pupils Fit

I am delighted to see that primary schools in our constituency will together receive over £454,000 of extra funding for PE and sports this year.

The money comes after the Department for Education’s decision to double the PE and Sports Premium from £160 million to £320 million, and is one aspect of a series of programmes led by the Department to improve healthy lifestyles among pupils and tackle childhood obesity.

You can find out more about the news, including a full list of individual allocations to schools receiving extra funds here.
