At Sparken Hill, we are committed to helping every one of our pupils to achieve their best. We recognise the sporting strengths of each individual and work hard to develop these appropriately. We aim to ensure success for all and to create a healthy self-image. We feel that Physical Education plays an important role in helping us to fulfill this.

This funding will be ring fenced and is allocated directly to primary schools across England, providing them with dedicated resource to buy in invaluable expertise and support. Sparken Hill have developed an action plan to help use this money to develop PE and School Sport for our Pupils.
