PE and Sport Premium


The government provides funding for primary schools to develop PE and sport provision.  

The funding is used to have a direct impact on the quality of teaching and learning in PE lessons and is used for:

Specialised professional development opportunities for staff.

Teachers working alongside specialist  PE teachers and coaches.

Purchasing resources and training courses for teachers.

Developing the leadership of PE across the school.

We are eager to encourage all of our children (whether they are naturally 'sporty' or not) to participate in competitions and tournaments. St Joseph's is part of a Small Schools PE Cluster, which gives us access to regular sporting events in schools across our region.


We have used funding to join the PE Cluster and provide transport to and from events. Most of our KS1 and all our KS2 children have been given the opportunity to compete against other schools including competitions in:

  • Football
  • Cross-country running
  • Netball
  • Cricket
  • Rounders
  • Swimming
  • Nerf Guns
  • Orienteering


To ensure children are active every day, we have focused on the physical activity of children on the playground and have provided playworkers and new play equipment to ensure all children have daily physical activity.

We have provided after school sports clubs for all children, including free places for children in receipt of free school meals including:

  • tennis
  • futsal
  • football
  • netball
  • tag rugby
  • multi-sports
  • street dance

To widen children's experience of sports and exercise we have provided workshops for children such as cycling and outdoor adventurous activities.

We have also subsidised residential places to ensure all Year 5/6 children can experience adventurous activity at Robinwood Activity Centre.

Our younger children benefit from building strength and gross motor skills so we have invested in equipment they can use to climb, balance and jump.

 See the Sports Premium Impact Report  (2022-23) for details on last year's aims and objectives in our use of the funding.
