PE and Sports Premium Funding

PE Website

At St Mary’s CE Infant School we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of the children. In addition, we believe that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children.

 PE is taught twice a week and where appropriate our lessons are connected to our termly topics. Our hall is equipped with age appropriate gymnastic equipment including enough mats for one between two pupils.  We also have a range of benches, agility tables, and pieces of soft play gym apparatus.

The PE and sport premium is part of a government initiative designed to help primary schools improve the quality of the PE and sport activities they offer their pupils so that they develop healthy lifestyles. Every primary school in the country has been provided with funding to support additional sports provision.
