St Winefride's Catholic Primary School, a Voluntary Academy

PE and Sports


Sports Premium Grant 2021 / 2022

PE and Sport play a very important part in the life of St Winefride’s Catholic Primary School, a Voluntary Academy where there are at least two sessions per week dedicated to physical activity in the curriculum, along with further opportunities to ensure all our pupils are achieving at least 30 minutes of daily activity within school. We believe that physical education and sport contribute to the development of children and through participation in sport and physical education, young people learn more about key values such as teamwork, fair play and respect for themselves and others. 

There is significant evidence to show the positive effects of sport and exercise on children’s physical health, growth and development. PE improves motor skills and increases muscle strength and bone density, which in turn makes students more likely to engage in healthy activity outside of school. Furthermore it educates children on the positive benefits of exercise and allows them to understand how good it can make them feel. Sport also provides a healthy environment for young people to learn how to deal with competition and how to cope with both winning and losing.

Our focus for this year (2021/2022) using the PE and School Sport Premium (£19,470) to improve the quality of PE and Sport provision in the following ways:

  • To organise 4 after school sports clubs (multisports and dance) for all year groups.
  • Provide adult led dinner time activities using a variety of sport equipment, including dance - leading to a higher level of pupil engagement across the school. 
  • Providing a scheme of work for PE that offers a broad and balanced sports curriculum to support staff.
  • Enabling children to attend more competitions, and to increase pupils’ participation in school games competitions.
  • To organise a whole school Active week in summer 2 to expose children to a range of activities as well as information regarding how to live a healthier lifestyle.
  • Ensuring all children have access to and subsidising extra-curricular activities throughout the year allowing them to lead even more active lives, including:

    • Year 4 swimming
    • Participation in the Daily Mile at least 3 times a week
    • Replenishing consumable resources to support our engaging curriculum and ensure all children can participate in PE lessons.
    • Purchase new resources to enable delivery of a broad PE curriculum.
    • Support and involve the least active children by providing targeted activities, and running or extending school sports.
    • Introduce new sports, dance or other activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities.

Our outdoor equipment/MUGA pitch/equipment provided continues to motivate children to be more active at playtimes.
