At Manorfield Primary and Nursery School, we are committed to ensure that we do all that we can to create memorable and meaningful sporting opportunities for all of our children. As well as wanting our children to see the importance that physical activity has in their lives in growing up fit and healthy; in line with our school mission statement, ‘We understand that you only want the very best education for your child and will want to find a school where your child will not only find academic success, but will also be happy and feel secure. At Manorfield we pride ourselves that 'every child is an individual' and spend time getting to know your child and you’
be it through competitive sports or from meeting a personal goal.
We welcomed the Government’s anouncement to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.
Sport Premium Grant
Funding for schools is calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11) as at the annual census in January. All schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £16,000 plus a premium of £10 per pupil. Smaller schools will receive £500 per pupil.
