PE & Sports Premium Funding


St Anne’s Catholic Primary School PE and School Sport Funding 2017-18


The government is determined to secure a significant and lasting legacy from the very successful 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games that were held in London. To achieve this and improve the provision of PE and sport in primary schools, additional funding of £150 million per annum has been made available since 2013.

In our school this amounts to £17,900 for 2017-18. (The school will receive a payment of £10,442 in October 2017 and a further payment of £7,458 in April 2018.)


Schools have to spend the PE and Sports Premium on improving their provision of PE and sport, but we have the freedom to choose how we do this. We use the premium in a number of different ways, which include hiring a specialist Sports Coach, providing a range of after school clubs and purchasing new equipment for specific sports. A full breakdown of how we plan to spend the money is listed in the statement at the bottom of the page.

At St Anne’s we believe that physical education and sport have a vital role to play in the physical, social, emotional and intellectual development of children. Physical education and sport are important in giving children the knowledge, understanding and the tools to make informed choices about healthy living and have a positive impact on their own health and well-being.

The physical education curriculum at St Anne’s aims to increase pupils’ self- confidence through an ability to manage themselves successfully in a variety of situations. Children will have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of sports and physical activities which are all carried out in a safe, supportive and inclusive environment. All children in Key Stage Two participate in Kickstart Kilometre, where effort and hard-work, as well as success, are celebrated and enjoyment and working together is promoted.

PE Curriculum

A wide range of activities are delivered in school which aim to engage and inspire all children. We are also committed to ensure that all children in KS2 receive at least 2 hours per week of high quality, well-planned Physical Education.

Over the year each child will participate in games, athletics, dance and gymnastics lessons. All children from Reception to Y6 receive a weekly swimming lesson. Our aim is that all children leave our school at the end of Year 6 able to swim 25 metres, therefore non-swimmers are given additional swimming lessons.

All Year 4, 5 and  6 children have the opportunity to participate in a week’s residential holiday which includes outdoor adventurous activities.

The Wider Curriculum

PE and Sport has a high profile in our school and permeates many aspects of school life.

Throughout the year we hold theme weeks such as ‘Health and Wellbeing’ week, where children participate in a wide range of activities and have a ‘taster’ session of a sport or activity that otherwise they may never have tried.

Classes have the opportunity to take part in structured play activities at lunchtime including football, bat and ball skills, skipping, trim trail and our outdoor activity play area.

During our residential visits, children are given opportunity to participate in many different activities which may include assault courses and abseiling, fencing, archery and kayaking.

In the summer term we also hold our annual Sports Days in which we encourage participation of all children and organise competitive races.

Talented children are signposted to local clubs and events to encourage them to develop their skills

Beyond the School Day

The school is keen to provide a wide range of extra – curricular clubs for children throughout the year which are organised by our teaching staff and/or sports coaches.

Children enjoy the opportunity to work with different teachers and have the chance to try many sports such as Netball, Dance, Cross Country, Football and Multi-skills.

Athletics, Handball and Volleyball.

We try to cater for all our children’s needs and ask the children which clubs they would like to see included during the year; we also monitor participation and check uptake against gender, Children’s University Tracker and Pupil Premium children.

We enter competitions and encourage children to participate in team sport. Please refer to the ‘Extra Curricular’ page on our website for more details of the extra curricular activities on offer.

Primary school experiences are pivotal to the children’s future perception of physical activity and we believe that children leave our school equipped to enjoy sport for all its health and social benefits. For those who relish the competitive element, they gain the skills, confidence and relevant experience to succeed at their chosen level and discipline.

St Anne’s is supported by the Local School Sports Partnership which has facilitated training for staff and assisted us in putting together bids for play equipment and enhancing our provision for sport.
