PE and Sports Premium Report

What is the Sports Premium?

Funding for 2022 to 2023

Allocations for the academic year 2022 to 2023 are calculated using the number of pupils in years 1 to 6, as recorded in the January 2021 census, as follows:

  • schools with 17 or more pupils receive £16,000 plus £10 per pupil
  • schools with 16 or fewer pupils receive £1,000 per pupil

The premium must be spent by schools on making additional and sustainable improvements to the provision of PE, physical activity and sport for the benefit of all pupils to encourage the development of healthy, active lifestyles.

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport

At St. Joseph & St Bede R.C. Primary School we have received £18,670

Our PE Curriculum Vision and Strategy

Research has proven a clear link between the health and wellbeing of students and their educational outcomes and this is at the forefront of our PE programme.

At St Joseph and St Bede R.C. Primary School we are committed to providing our pupils with up to 2 hours of high quality P.E. each week. All pupils are involved in our physical exercise program during curriculum time, which includes a variety of activities designed to challenge and inspire the children. The curriculum map includes activities such as athletics, gymnastics, dance, invasion games, basketball, hockey, track and field events and swimming. We strongly believe that Physical Education is an important part of the curriculum as it helps develop pupils’ team work skills, physical ability and confidence, developing their capacity to use these skills to perform a range of activities.

As well as these curriculum activities, St Joseph and St Bede R.C. Primary School provides every child with the opportunity to take part in enrichment clubs/teams after school, covering a wide range of sports.

Our P.E. curriculum in action

Strong links, coupled with the continued hard work and effort invested in P.E. at St. Joseph & St Bede, allow the school to consistently improve the level and quality of sport on offer each year, both within the school day and at after school clubs.
