Sports Premium 2017-2018

Victoria Lane Academy – Sports Premium Funding

Victoria Lane Academy has been allocated £8,600 for 2017-2018 from the Government’s Sports Premium Funding. This money will be spent over the course of the year to finance sustainable developments in PE. and sport opportunities for children in school. Our whole school priorities are:

    •  the engagement of ALL pupils in regular physical activity to develop healthy active lifestyles
    •  Increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
    •  Broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils (within curriculum and extra-curricular)
