PE Funding

The government continues providing additional PE & Sport funding to continue improving provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.

Simon Marks Jewish Primary School is committed to ensuring our children understand the importance of being active, having a healthy lifestyle and enjoy sports and games activities. Here are some of the things we spent our allocation on.
