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 2023/24 we expect to receive £19,570.
At St Patrick's we have used this funding in a variety of ways to improve the opportunities we offer to our pupils to take part in physical and sports activities.
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 Ms Mel Alexander.
Our Sports Teacher is Ms Shannon Boyce.

In additon to curriculum PE, we also run a wide range of extra-curricular clubs.
We achieved the School Games Gold Award again for 2022-2023! This is a great achievement and we are very proud of all the children and staff who made it happen. Well done!
