Our school is dedicated to improving the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision - this includes increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils will adopt a healthy life-style and reach the performance levels they are capable of.
All of our fabulous children who have participated in competitive sport winning over 40 trophies - Well Done!

For the financial year 2015/2016 the school received £8,755.
For the financial year 2016/2017 it is anticipated that the school will receive £8,785.
This funding is instrumental in the school's ability to provide many sporting opportunities. Since received school has taken part in many competitions as well as providing after-school sporting clubs. All the clubs are oversubscribed and they are given high priority as an extra curricular activity. We encourage all our children to participate, supporting and encouraging the least active. The Cathedral School of St Peter and St John RC Primary has held the Gold level for participation in the School Games for the past 3 years.
We want to encourage our children to help them understand the benefits of changing their lifestyle habits - changing for life:
School uses the funding to pay for qualified coaches to work with teachers and to provide existing staff with training and resources to help them teach P.E. more effectively.
The funding has been used to provide:
> after-school and lunch-time sports clubs
> employment of sports coaches to lead on clubs
> resources - multi sports use fixed equipment, storage facilities for sports eqipment
> competition entry and travel to these fixtures
> additional swimming lessons/transport
> course attendance to develop staff teaching-skills in sports
In 2016/17 part of the available grant will be used towards a new school minibus - school has a huge trophy cabinet - this is a result of continued input into sport by the school and involves many of our children working hard along with staff attending many competitions. It is expected a school minibus will further enable our school to achieve in sport without having to rely on very costly hired transport. Our new bus should arrive soon so watch this space!
Principles for Sport Premium Funding
Here at The Cathedral School of St Peter and St John RC Primary, we ensure that teaching and learning opportunities in sport and PE are of high quality, meeting the needs of all pupils so they achieve their potential. We provide and broad and varied curriculum in PE.
Sports Premium funding is allocated and targeted based on needs analysis which identifies priority classes, groups or individuals who will benefit from intervention in PE and sport. Limited funding and resources means that not all children will be in receipt of sports premium interventions at one time.
What are our key priorities - our objectives of the funding?
