Primary Sports Funding

September 2023 - July 2024

Purpose of the Grant

  • To develop the PE and sport activities that we currently offer.
  • To build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years.
  • To improve the provision of PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles.

Objectives and Principles

At St Alban’s Catholic Primary School, our aim is to develop a PE curriculum that is designed to teach children skills that will have a positive impact on their future health and wellbeing. We aim to deliver inclusive, high-quality teaching and learning opportunities that inspire all children to develop the competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities. We want to teach children how to co-operate and collaborate with others, as part of a team, understanding fairness and equality of play to embed life-long values. Swimming and water safety are important life skills and we aspire for all children to leave primary school being able to swim at least 25 metres.

We want our children to develop the knowledge, skills and capabilities necessary for mental, emotional, social and physical wellbeing now and for their future. Physical fitness is an important part of leading a healthier, active lifestyle. It teaches self-discipline and that to be successful you must work hard, show resilience and have the determination to believe that anything can be achieved. We want our children to be able to be physically active for sustained periods of time. We hope children enjoy PE and develop a love of sport, and physical activity, that they pursue outside of school and in future life beyond primary school.

The funding will develop a programme that includes:

  • High quality physical education, as part of the curriculum, including knowledge and understanding of a healthy lifestyle.
  • Wider range of extracurricular clubs.
  • Structured playtimes and lunchtime activities to encourage participation and promote healthy well-being.
  • Entering different leagues, festivals, sports tournaments and competitions organised by Havering Sports Collective.
  • Sports enrichment opportunities across the school.
  • Play Leaders to work with the Havering Sports Collective to lead games during playtime and lunchtimes.
