Government Sports Funding
Following the success of the 2012 and 2016 Olympics, the government have invested money in improving outcomes for children and encouraging children to become Gold medallists of the future. Schools across the country are receiving additional funding to support this initiative over the next few years. At Mossfield, we are keen to invest heavily in opportunities for our children to take part in a range of activities, including competitions with other schools, competitions in school and introducing children to new sports and activities.
