P.E.and Sport Premium Funding


What is the P.E. and Sports Premium?

It was introduced in 2013 to improve the provision of physical education and school sport in primary schools across England.  The funding is provided by the Departments for Education, Health, and Culture, Media and Sport.  The funding is allocated directly to primary schools and is ring- fenced.  This means it must only be spent on improving the provision of P.E. and sport in schools.  It is intended to make additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of P.E. for the benefit of all pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles. 

St. Joseph`s vision

At St. Joseph`s we recognise the contribution of P.E. to the health and well being (both physical and mental) of our children.  We believe that a varied P.E. curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the achievements (academically, personally, socially and physically) of our children.

We aim to provide opportunities for pupils to develop and become healthy individuals who have the enthusiasm and skills to participate in sport and activities both in St. Joseph`s and when they leave, thus encouraging healthy habits for

 We believe this is the best way to spend the funding to ensure as many children as possible have the opportunity to engage in different physical activities and gain access to skilled coaches.
