At St. Joseph’s P.E. and school sport are an integral part of both the curriculum and ethos of the school. We believe that P.E. and school sport can teach the children the importance of teamwork, health, confidence and all round  development and through participation, our children build and learn more about our key values such as respect, unity, co-operation and kindness for themselves and others.

We are therefore delighted to be able to use £8,000 of sport premium funding to support the development of P.E. and school sport in the following ways;

Our overall aim is to raise standards in P.E. and school sport increasing the participation and opportunities offered to our children. We aim to provide higher quality lessons and improved learning for all.
