The Government has made available to all schools a sum of money to allow them to continue to develop sports provision within school and to help schools increase pupil participation in sporting activity. This money equates to £16,000 per school per year plus an additional £10 per child. For our school this means that for the academic year 2020/21 we expect to receive £19,530.
At St Patrick's we have used this funding to employ the services of a specialist skills teacher to work alongside our teachers in planning for and delivering PE and sports in the school. In order to further enhance provision we also employed an apprentice to work with classes and their teachers during physical education sessions.
As a result, pupils take part in PE lessons regularly, with enthusiasm and growing confidence and ability. As such attainment in PE is good and the children take part in a wide range of sporting competitions and tournaments with other local schools.
Our Sports Leader is Mr Adam Porter.
Our Sports Teacher is Ms Mel Alexander.
