Scotforth St Pauls CE Primary and Nursery P.E and Sport Funding

For many years we have worked hard to ensure that all our children have access to a varied and exciting programme of sport and P.E., both in school lessons and via the extra-curricular programme we offer. We were very pleased when we were allocated approximately £9000 from the government, commencing in October 2013 to improve the quality of sport and P.E. for all our pupils. The allocation is calculated according to the intake of the school and the school provision, including increased participation in P.E and Sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and their potential. This year is no exception and the government has allocated a sum for each school. Scotforth will receive £17810 coming into school at varying times.
