Impact of Sports Premium Funding
At Dr Radcliffe’s our use of the Sports Premium has had a significant and positive impact on the quality and quantity of PE and School Sport provision for the children at the school. Below is an outline of the key areas in which the children have benefitted.
1. More confident and competent staff and enhanced quality of teaching and learning:
