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 4 years.
We are a school with Healthy School status and we want to encourage our children to help them understand the benefits of changing their lifestyle habits - changing for life:
We use some of our sports grants towards the school minibus use, which has been put to good use during this autumn term 2020 - all classes have been taken on the bus to Heaton Park so they can expend some of their never-ending energy - a great time had by all with the children absolutely delighted to be out in the fresh air running around. Fantastic benefit! Our children are very sport orientated and welcome an active school lifestyle and we are committed to provided this for them.
The funding has been used so far since the beginning 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 equipment
> competition entry and travel to these fixtures
> additional swimming lessons/transport
> course attendance to develop staff teaching-skills in sports
> a school minibus
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?
