Sports Premium at Dalton School

This school academic year 2023/24 we will receive £20,730 (£16000 plus £10 for every child) to:

  • Develop the PE and sport activities that Dalton School already offers, especially focusing on the broad range of sports that are offered.
  • Ensure that all children participate in sports offered, through extra-curricular activities and out-of-school sporting events.
