P.E.and Sport Premium Funding

A grant of £8,837 was received for the P.E. and Sport Premium Funding (April 2017 to April 2018 financial year).  

The projected spend on P.E. and sport is as follows:

  • £1,000 for the London P.E. School Sport Network. This is the body the school is affiliated to in order to participate in tournaments and competitions.
  • £660 for an after school dance club for children in years 3 and 4.
  • £1,080 to the Movement factory to run after school dance clubs (summer term 2017).
  • £4,320 to Progressive Sports London who come in two afternoons per week to take four classes for PE (specialising in dance, gym and athletics). Every year group from year 1 to 6 gets two terms with them.  The specialist teaching contributes to the professional development of St. Joseph`s staff.   Progressive also take two after school dance clubs per week.
  • £2,145 to Progressive Sports London to run an intervention programme to support children in physical education and PE classes in the summer term of 2017.
  • £408 for football coaching.
  • £360 on a Kids Fit day promoting exercise and healthy habits.
  • £500 on general resources and equipment.
  • £200 on transport for going to and from tournaments, competitions etc.

Total: £10,673 projected spend from April 2017 to April 2018

We believe this is the best way to spend the funding to ensure as many children as possible have the opportunity to engage in physical activities and gain access to a qualified, skilled sports coach.   

Impact of PE and Sport Premium on St. Joseph`s RC Primary School

PE has improved greatly St. Joseph`s since having the PE and Sport Premium. We now have a specialist who teaches athletics, dance and gym from year 1 to year 6 and supports teachers in their professional development in this area. The children have access to high quality teaching in all areas of P.E.  The P.E. lessons are planned for each year group to ensure that they progress and learn skills appropriate to their age and ability.

The Sport Premium money has enabled us to offer more sporting opportunities and hence, sport participation in clubs has increased in recent years.  As a school we run clubs after school and also offer physical activity at lunchtimes.  Our aim is to have each child in the school participate in at least two hours of physical activity/education every week and also to make extra physical education available to every child who wants it through sports clubs and active playtime sessions.  

The difference the P.E. and Sport Premium funding has had on the pupils is highly visible not only in the numbers attending clubs but also in their achievements.  

The list of achievements in recent years includes:

Children at St. Joseph`s school make outstanding progress in P.E.  We have a wide and diverse P.E. curriculum giving the children lots of different experiences within P.E. and sport and making it part of their enjoyable, healthy lifestyle.

We look at how well we use our Sport Premium to improve the quality and breath of P.E. and sporting provision, including increasing participation in P.E. and sport so all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

Some key points

  • £8,837 sports grant received for April 2017 to April 2018
  • £10,673 is the projected spend
  • There are more sports clubs than ever before at St. Joseph`s.
  • More children than ever before are taking part in a sports club at St. Joseph`s.
  • The majority of children (from year 1 to 6) take part in at least one after school sports club.
  • While this section is about physical education and we understand the important role that plays in a healthy lifestyle we also acknowledge children will have interests in different areas. With this in mind we also run after school clubs in gardening (x2), art (x2), drama, craft and a choir. 
  • We are justifiably proud of our children for their participation in physical education. And also for their exemplary sportsmanship and good behaviour at tournaments as well as the successful results achieved in recent years.
  • All of our children are given an opportunity to develop their physical education. We will continue to do our best to offer them as good and as wide a programme as we can provide.
  • All our after school clubs are free to the children.
