Sports Funding

Marden Primary Academy is a learning place where we want everyone to succeed and thrive.

The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games gave us a once in a lifetime opportunity to inspire the nation to enjoy sport and develop healthy lifestyles. The Government is determined to secure a significant and lasting legacy from the Games and introduced new funding arrangements for schools from September 2013 to improve the quality of sport and PE for all children in primary schools.

We are using this to enhance the quality and breadth of our PE provision at Marden Primary Academy by:

  • Increasing participation in school sport by running additional after school PE clubs
  • Providing opportunities for more children to participate in sporting tournaments and fixtures
  • Organising healthy schools week in the summer term
  • subsidising swimming¬†
  • improving sporting infrastructure and equipment

We are confident that many pupils will benefit as a result of this enhanced funding.
