PE Vision

Within both schools of the Holy Cross Federation, we strive to provide our children with High Quality, wide ranging, inclusive, yet challenging, PE and School Sport opportunities that will inspire them to continue their learning beyond the classroom and their time spent here with us. Whether this be through taking part in school based and local community clubs, supporting them to lead healthy, active lifestyles or through participation at local competitions. We encourage every child to fulfil their full potential and ‘Be the Best that they can be.’

School Sport Funding

In September 2013 the Government in England started providing funding to Primary Schools to support schools in providing High Quality PE and School Sport. This funding has been jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and has seen money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of physical education and sport for all their children. It has recently been announced that this funding will continue until 2020. This funding is ring-fenced and can only be spent on physical education and sport provision in schools. 

We are delighted to announce that the funding this year has been doubled, each school will receive £16,000 plus £5 per pupil. This funding should be spent to improve provision in three key areas:

  • Curriculum PE
  • School Sport
  • Healthy and Active Lifestyles. 

From September 2013, schools have been held to account over how they spend their additional, ring-fenced funding. Ofsted will strengthen the coverage of PE and sport within the 'Inspectors’ handbook' and supporting guidance so that both schools and inspectors know how sport and PE will be assessed in future as part of the school’s overall provision. 

Each year, following audits and self-reviews, particular areas are highlighted as needing to be developed within PE and School Sport.  Below is an outline of what the funding was spent on during the 2017/18 academic year, what was done and the impact it had. 

Both schools across the Federation have benefited from this funding in many ways:
