Primary PE and Sport Funding
The PE and Sport Premium Funding
The Government provides schools in England, Scotland and Wales with additional funding to help them develop and enrich their sports provision across the school.
We use the premium funding to:
- develop or add to the PE and sport activities that our school already offers
- build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
We will also use our funding to:
- provide our teaching staff with professional development, mentoring, training and resources to help them teach PE and sport more effectively
- hire qualified sports coaches to work with teachers to enhance or extend current opportunities
- introduce new sports, dance or other activities to encourage more pupils to take up sport and physical activities
- support and involve the least active children by providing targeted activities, and running or extending school sports and holiday clubs
- enter or run more sport competitions
- embed physical activity into the school day through active travel to and from school, active playgrounds and active teaching
All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils will now receive a lump sum of £16,000 plus a premium of £10 per pupil. Smaller schools will receive £1000 per pupil (all allocations have been doubled from September 2017).

Our commitment to physical wellbeing and achievement for all
At St. Joseph’s we are committed to promoting healthy lifestyle choices and physical well-being for all our pupils regardless of their abilities and backgrounds. We therefore strongly believe that physical education is essential in the promotion of these ideas.
This means that our pupils have the opportunity to take part in two well structured P.E. lessons each week. These lessons are centred on providing our pupils with opportunities to develop the skills and techniques needed to make good progress across the P.E. Curriculum. Each P.E. lesson is carefully planned and tailored to meet the needs of our pupils and delivered with the expectation that all our pupils make good or even better progress.
Clubs and Competitions
In addition to our twice weekly timetabled P.E. lessons we also provide our pupils with further opportunities to engage in extra curricular sporting activities and events. These activities and events include before and afterschool clubs: Tennis, Dance (Ballet and Modern), Multi-Skills and Football Training.
We also attend and take part in borough run competitions and initiatives such as; The Primary Sports Festival, The Kwik Cricket Competition, Kensington and Chelsea Primary Football Leagues and Multi-Skills competitions.
We see swimming as an important life skill, so to enable all our pupils to have the opportunity to become capable and confident swimmers we provide swimming lessons for Years 3, 4 and 5 over the academic year (each term). We do this because we know that through structured lessons and practice our pupils will develop, not only the skills that could one day save their lives, but also to foster a love for the sport. This sense of enjoyment and achievement could inspire them to be the champion swimmers of the future.
MEND (Mind, Exercise, Nutrition…Do it!)
We recognise that it is not just the physical aspect of sport and fitness that is responsible for our pupil’s well being, so we at St. Joseph’s work closely with the NHS and other external services and providers to promote posititive attitudes towards healthy eating and regular exercise. Our work in school with MEND encourages pupils and their families to see the benefits of maintaining a healthy and balanced diet. We see our role with MEND to also make pupils and their families aware of some of the dangers associated with poor food choices, such as; coronary disease. Ultimately, MEND led sessions and workshops help to promote the knowledge that attitudes towards regular physical activity and healthy eating are equally important to both the physical and mental well-being of the individual.
