The Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, provide money directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. St. Monica’s received £9425 in the 2015/2016 financial year.
At St. Monica’s Primary School, we recognise the significant contribution of PE to the health and well-being of all our children. In addition, we believe that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curriculum opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all children. The money has been used to benefit all children regardless of their sporting ability. We will continue to place a high priority on our PE provision and have invested in additional staffing and resources to further enhance the PE curriculum. We are committed to further improving our sports provision and as such, we monitor the impact this funding has in our school very closely. Should you have any/suggestions to make or indeed have skills and knowledge that would be valuable to our children, please feel free to contact the school.
In assessing our success, the following key considerations are taken into account;
• The importance of enjoyment and play
• The maximum participation of all pupils
• The developing of skills and understanding by pupils
• The balance between competitive and non-competitive activities
• The balance between contact and non-contact activities
• The inclusion of all pupils
• Safety issues
• The use of resources
