Sports Funding

Sports funding was introduced by the Government in September 2013.  The purpose was to provide primary schools with additional money to support them in developing Physical Education in schools and build an Olympic Legacy.

We take sports provision very seriously here at Rickley Park and we have a team of 2 excellent teachers who develop talent across all year groups. We also have excellent links with the local College, meaning that new teaching talent is utilised here too. We have a vision of being a World Class sports provider in the coming years and we are currently working on the Sports Gold Mark.
