PE & Sport Premium

PE and sport matter a lot to us at Orchard Head: they make an important contribution to health and wellbeing. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and opportunities for sport outside school hours have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.

The DfE awards each primary school in England an annual amount of £16,000 plus an extra £10 per eligible pupil to help fund PE and sport. You can learn more about this funding here, and click on the following reports to find out what we’ve been doing with it at Orchard Head:
