In April 2013, the Government announced funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.
Funding will be allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils, including: primary, middle, special and non-maintained special schools, academies and pupil referral units from 1 September 2013. A typical primary school will receive about £9,250 annually.
In 2018/19 St. Wilfrid’s will receive a ‘P.E Sport Premium’ of £18, 700. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding. Funding must improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, increasing participation in PE and inspiring the children to lead healthy, active lifestyles.
The Schools within the Newman Catholic Collegiate have pooled a percentage of this Funding, employing a Physical Education Specialist Leader of Education (Mr. Sigley) to manage and co-ordinate P.E across all 8 Primary Academies.
At St Wilfrid’s the delivery of P.E is carefully monitored in several ways. We are diligent in ensuring that all children benefit from an exciting, structured and challenging P.E offer.
Throughout 2018/2019 all of the School’s within the Newman Catholic Collegiate will benefit from:
- Teachers receiving 1-to-1 CPD with a P.E Specialist in a wide variety of activities. This will continue to raise the standard of teaching and learning in P.E across the Collegiate.
- An increase in competitive opportunities in a number of Physical Activities.
- An increase in intra school competitions.
- An increase in extra-curricular opportunities for pupils to extend their learning.
- A simple and effective assessment policy implemented throughout the Collegiate.
- An elevated focus on teaching our children the benefits of Healthy, Active Lifestyles.
The Newman Catholic Collegiate places a huge emphasis on the important role P.E and Sport plays in developing children’s physical, social and mental health.
Each School within the Collegiate continually evaluates its P.E and Sports delivery. Please read our ‘P.E Impact document’ to learn more about the ways in which we do this and the innovative plans we have in place for 2018/19!
