What is Sports Premium?
The government is providing additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport - will be allocated to primary school head teachers.
This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in Schools.
Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. In most cases, we determine how many pupils in your school attract the funding using data from the January 2015 school census. Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £8,000 and an additional payment of £5 per pupil.

In allocating Sports Premium money the school has considered the needs of the pupils and the skills that the teachers are able to provide. All children are assessed for PE, taking into account their individual ability. Sports skills are deemed to be a strength of the school due to good teaching and are reflected in the school’s sporting achievements each year. All pupils are given an opportunity to engage and excel in sporting activities through lessons and extra-curricular clubs.
We pride ourselves on the experiences we offer to the full range of pupils at our school. At Scotter Primary School we aim to give access for all to quality first PE teaching.
