Primary School PE and Sport Mission Statement

We at St Cuthbert’s Primary School, wish to provide the best PE and sport provision possible. We aim to deliver a programme of high-quality lessons and to provide a pathway to participation that will enable all pupils to build their confidence and achieve their full potential.

Primary School PE and Sport Funding for 2019/20

The government provides additional funding to improve the provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. The funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent in the following ways:-

  • To develop or add to the PE, physical activity and sport activities that our school already offers
  • To build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

Schools can use the premium to secure improvements in the following 5 key indicators:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • 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

St Cuthbert’s has 210 eligible pupils and is due to receive £18,100 of primary school PE and sport funding for 2019/20.
