Celebrating the best uses of the Primary PE and Sport Premium across Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin

These awards will recognise schools that have innovated and endeavoured to provide improved outcomes for pupils using the Primary PE and Sport Premium grant.

All primary schools in Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin receiving the grant can be nominated for one of three awards:

  • Sustainability
  • Innovation
  • Active Schools

The Awards

Unfortunately, due to the impact of Covid-19 and the low number of entries, the 2019/2020 awards had to be cancelled.

Entries for the 2020/2021 awards will be open in February 2021 with applications judged and announced by early July.  

County winners will progress through to the West Midlands Regional Awards.
