Our Lady Catholic Primary School At Our Lady School, We Learn to Love and Love to Learn with Jesus.


PE and Sport Premium



Our vision at Our Lady Catholic Primary School is that all children enjoy and develop positive attitudes to Physical Education and sport.


Through Physical Education and sport we aim to:

  • Improve fitness, health and well-being.
  • Promote active participation and lifelong learning.
  • Allow each child to fulfil their potential.


The school receives additional funds to support the development of Physical Education and Sport in school (Sport Premium). This money is in addition to the curriculum funding for PE and Sport from the main school budget. The way in which we have spent our sports premium is attached below.


The government is providing additional funding of £150 million per annum to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding – provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport – will be allocated to primary school head teachers. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in schools.


The Sports Premium Allocation for our school in the academic year 2023-2024 is approximately £17,069.


Our aim in Physical Education is to help our children to understand the importance of leading a healthy and active lifestyle by offering them a curriculum that will motivate, enthuse and inspire them to engage in sporting activities both during their time at Primary School and beyond. We encourage the children to work hard to achieve personal success and to develop their skills and confidence. As well as  offering traditional curriculum sports such as dance, gymnastics, football and cricket, we also introduce children to an alternative sport each year in order to develop their experiences.

At Our Lady Catholic Primary School we believe that:

  • Providing pupils with lifelong healthy habits will enable them to be physically active for the rest of their lives.
  • Participation in quality PE and sport can improve physical and mental well-being which will transfer into measureable school achievement outcomes.
  • By taking part in PE and sport it can improve a huge range of social skills, promote inclusion and lead to better cohesion.
  • PE and sport can also help to shape behaviour and develop leadership skills.
  • PE and sports leadership help each child to understand their God-given gifts and talents, and to develop physically, social, emotionally and spiritually.


We are committed to ensuring that all pupils receive a minimum of 2 hours of PE per week, delivered by well-trained and enthusiastic teachers. The Sports Premium funding is allowing us to develop a sustainable improvement in teacher confidence and a new curriculum based on developing children’s physical skills.


Please read the information below which gives details of our PE and Sport Premium Grant and how we allocate the funding.


We evaluate the action plan at the end of each academic year to identify the successes and impact of the initiatives that have been targeted. Delivery will be monitored by the PE leader and SLT to ensure that effective and high quality delivery of PE is ensured.
