Sports Funding

Spending, Impact and Success

Since September 2013, government Education, Sports and Health departments have issued LaceyField with a substantial yearly amount of money, ring-fenced to be spent by the school on ‘improving the quality of sport and PE’. With careful planning and consideration, the school is delighted with the outcome and provision it has been able to provide to all pupils this academic year and we will build upon these foundations for the next academic year too. We are incredibly proud of all the achievements that LaceyField has gained this year- from football to dancing and, through to the development of Paralympic sports, our children have had extensive opportunities to develop their skills.
