Physical Education and Sport

At St Francis Church of England Primary we believe that Physical Education, experienced in a safe and supportive environment, plays a unique and vital contribution to a pupil’s physical development and well-being. Both the PE curriculum and extra-curricular sport and physical activities aim to improve the quality of life for all children, through providing opportunities to develop the skills, knowledge and attitudes necessary for a healthy and active lifestyle.

Each year we participate in a range of sporting festivals and competitions with other Oxfordshire schools. These include Sports Hall athletics competitions for Y5/6, Gymnastics Festivals for Y2, 6 a-side football tournament for Y3/4 and a Winter Olympics day at the Oxford Ice rink for Y5/6.

 

Primary School PE and Sports grant 

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

How much does the school receive and how do we spend it?

Last year (2015-16) we received £9,575.  Please click here to see how we have used this money to improve pupil outcomes.
