All schools receive special, additional funding to support the development of PE and Sport. St James' usually receives approximately £8500 per year.
We use our funding to:
- buy into our local Sports Partnership
- buy specialist coaching
- provide quality training for our staff
- purchase additional resources for PE lessons and for lunchtime playtimes
- provide specific PE workshops during our 'themed' weeks
We also encourage health and fitness through a variety of activities and curriculum based topics/themes, particularly in science and PSHME.
Our latest report can be found here. (September 2016)
In July 2016, we were proud to receive the School Games Silver Award for our work, and this year, we're going for Gold!
