Our sports vision:




PE and Sport Grant

This funding is provided by the Government to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils so that they develop healthy lifestyles.

Sports Funding 2017 - 2018

PE and Sport at The Linden Academy 

At The Linden Academy, we have decided that one of the key targets for improvement of the personal development, behaviour and welfare of our children, will be a focus on the enhancement of a healthy lifestyle, part of which includes a review of the provision of Physical Education. As such, each class will participate in 2 hours of PE every week. This will not affect the provision of core academic learning.

As we are sure that our families will wish to support this drive, including by ensuring their child is appropriately dressed for PE on the correct days as advised by the class teachers.

School Sports Festivals & Competitive Events

During the course of recent months we have enhanced our commitment to participation in sporting events with the local community schools, giving children the opportunity to represent TLA and develop their skills. Go Team Linden!
