Our school has a central role to play in supporting all children to live healthy active lives. At St Mary’s, we lay the foundations of positive and enjoyable participation in regular physical activity.
About the PE and Sport Premium
Crucial to achieving this is ensuring that our pupils have access to at least 30 minutes of physical activity during the school day, alongside high-quality PE provision taught by confident and knowledgeable teachers and opportunities to experience and participate in a wide range of sports and physical activities.
Our school receives PE and sport premium grant funding, which is used by to support these aims to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of the PE, sport and physical activity which we provide.
