Sports Funding 2018-19

St John Vianney Catholic Primary School

Sports Premium 2018-19

We are proud of the PE curriculum and sporting opportunities that we have on offer at St John Vianney Catholic Primary School. We believe that the purpose of Physical Education is to inspire and motivate all children to be active in their lives, enabling them to become physically confident. The importance of living a healthy lifestyle and taking regular exercise needs to be encouraged, alongside the teaching of key fundamental skills. We believe that children should have opportunities to apply the skills they have learnt in competitive situations, either within teams or individually. As a result, key values, including team -work, resilience, determination and fair play, can be taught and promoted in an active way. We believe these key values are vital for pupils’ development because lots of these are transferable skills, which can be applied to wider life experiences. Furthermore, we believe that PE plays a fundamental role in educating the whole student.

Our school has been allocated £17,790 for the academic year 2018-19. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
