LEDBURY Primary School has received nearly £10,000 from the Government to help deliver physical education to pupils.
The funding is part of a £697,310 injection to Herefordshire schools and a second round of payments from Parliament which has pledged £450million to boost sporting activities for students around the country.
Headteacher Julie Rees said the £9,750 they had received would be used to target development of physical literacy in Years 5 and 6, as well as the development of games across the school and increasing pupil engagement in lunch and after school clubs.
Bill Wiggin, MP for North Herefordshire, said: “I am very pleased our schools are getting this extra boost from the Government to help deliver even better PE lessons.
“With another year of funding still to come for schools in Herefordshire, I am sure the headteachers know exactly where this money would make the most difference.
“This is yet another example of how the Government is working to help schools encourage sport and keep our children active as part of the legacy of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.”
