PE & Sports Grant

The PE and Sports Premium is an allocation of money given to schools to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, as well as giving all children the opportunity to experience a range of activities outside of the classroom. Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and range of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of Physical Education, School Sport and Physical Activity (PESSPA) they offer.

At St Wilfrid's we will be using the money to focus on four key areas:

  • Assured training and coaching for staff to raise their confidence and competence in teaching PE and sport
  • Increased participation and enjoyment of PE for all pupils during lessons and extracurricular opportunities
  • Development of our talented sportsmen/women to support them in reaching their potential and further progressing within their fields
  • Procurement of high-quality, age-appropriate equipment to meet the needs of our pupils in a growing school





In 2020 – 21, St Wilfrid's received £19,595 by way of Sports Premium funding.  To find out about how sport fits into our curriculum please view our curriculum policy.

Sport can create hope where once there was despair.  It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination.
