Primary PE and Sports Premium

The Primary PE and sport premium will encourage children to play more sport, increase their social skills, and improve their physical activity after lockdown. Schools will also be able to improve the quality of their teaching and make longer-term, sustainable changes to their lessons.

St John Henry Newman Catholic Primary School is committed to ensuring that the Primary PE and Sports premium funding is allocated to high quality, sustainable initiatives that address the following key areas:

  • Staff professional development including Subject Leader Management.

  • Improved PE and Sport-specific resourcing.

  • Raised participation levels within curricular and extra-curricular activities including intra and inter competition.

  • Improved knowledge, skills and understanding related to health and fitness.

  • Increased learning opportunities associated with healthy diet and nutrition.

We aim to use the funding effectively to ensure that standards of learning and achievement in PE and Sports are raised, with all children, regardless of their background, engaging in physical activity as part of the curriculum and extra-curricular provision.
