St. Mary’s R.C. PE / Sports Premium Report 2016-2017



Over the period 2016-2017 St Mary’s Catholic Primary School will receive £9,144 in PE/Sports premium funding.


Our aim is to ensure that we continue to promote, and deliver a curriculum that is enriched in sport activities, and opportunities for children to live healthy lifestyles. We also want to give our pupils the opportunity to take part in a range of different sporting activities that will provide the skills for them to take part and compete with other schools from within the local and wider community.


Our Principles

One of our key aims is to ensure that the children at St Mary’s receive a balanced and progressive sporting curriculum. We have worked hard with staff and experts to ensure that this progression is in place as well as giving teachers the confidence to tailor to their children’s needs and interests.


A significant investment has been made on playtime play equipment in order to improve children’s healthy lifestyles by promoting social skills and play activities for them.


Sporting opportunities have been given to the children that allow them to access both the skills of our own teachers as well as those of external providers such as; gymnastics, rugby, netball, swimming and cricket coaches.


This academic year has also seen a huge focus on developing staff through Continued Professional Development. Staff have worked closely with experts from the Hive to ensure that they are confidently using the PE portal to provide exciting progressive PE lessons.
