We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and experiences  for all our young people.

At Kirk Smeaton Primary School we have split up the funding by the three key areas for consideration; Physical Education, Healthy Active Lifestyles and Competitive Sport. We have decided to spend the Sport Premium Grant on the following:
