Sport Premium Funding
At Burton upon Stather Primary, we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
In 2016-17 budget, the government pledged to increase the primary sports funding pot from £160 million to £320 million in 2017-18, using the extra cash raised by the new tax on sugary soft drinks
