Sports Premium

What is Sport Premium?

In April 2013, the Government announced new funding for physical education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision. Funding is allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils, including: primary, middle, special and non-maintained special schools, academies and pupil referral units.  Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

How much funding did the school receive?

In 2016/17 Scarcliffe Primary School received £8141
