The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve 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.
At South Harringay School we are committed to ensuring our children understand the importance of being active, having a healthy lifestyle and enjoying sports and games activities.
