Aspirations and Allocation



At Meridian School, we believe physical education gives our children the opportunity to embody our school’s values (confidence, courtesy, responsibility and adventure). Participating in sporting and games activities throughout and after the school day encourages our children to develop healthy, active lifestyles and promotes physical, social, emotional, and mental well-being.

Funding Information

Since 2013, the Government has spent over £450 million on funding for schools, aiming to inspire school sports and allow for additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sports that we offer. This funding is allocated to schools based on the number of children in Years 1 to 6 and has recently increased.


Meridian have welcomed this funding and we are committed to using this resource to continue to develop high quality PE lessons and facilities, alongside greater opportunities for all our young people.
