PE and Sport Premium for Primary Schools

The government is providing £450 million for improving Physical Education (PE) and sport in primary schools over the 3 academic years 2013/14, 2014/15 and 2015/ 16.

In the summer term of 2014, St. Mary of the Angels was awarded the Silver Healthy Schools Award having  achieved the Bronze Award in 2013 and Enhanced Healthy Schools Status in 2011. As of January 2015, we are one of only 59 schools in London that have achieved the silver award and we are now busy working towards achieving the Gold award.
