Here at Heasandford we feel that the funding will help to improve individual skills, confidence, self esteem and attitude towards Physical Education. It is vital that all of our children have the opportunities to have fun and enjoy every aspect of Physical Education. As a school we have decided to use the money to:

•        Buy into the Burnley School Sports Partnership Programme

•        Provide professional development opportunities for staff in PE and sport

•        Buy quality assured professional development modules or materials for PE and Sport

•        Enhance Enrichment activities

•        Further develop our outdoor equipment

•        Buy into the Tots on Tyres and Bikeability schemes
