PE and Sport Premium at St James'

The Aims of our Physical Education Curriculum

  • To enable children to develop and explore physical skills with increasing enjoyment, competence, control and coordination.
  • To encourage children to work and play with others in a range of group situations. 
  • To increase children’s ability to use what they have learnt to evaluate and improve the quality and control of their performance.
  • To teach children to recognise and describe how their bodies feel during exercise.
  • To enable children to lead healthy, active lives and be physically active for sustained periods of time.
  • To encourage participation in competition for developing skills in sportsmanship (for example: celebrating success, being supportive, striving to get better and handling disappointment).

During the academic year 2021-2022, we received £17,790 PE and sport premium funding. 

These are the 5 key indicators that we expect to see improvement across through the use of the PE and sport premium funding:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
  • 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.
