Sport at St. Edward's
In P.E, the children at St Edward’s develop competence to excel in a broad range of physical activities and are physically active for sustained periods of time.  They also have many opportunities to engage in competitive sports and activities and lead healthy, active lives.  At St. Edward's, we ensure that our pupils become physically confident in a way that supports their health and fitness.  The children also learn and live by the Olympic and Para-Olympic values such as respect, fairness, courage and determination whilst they engage in a range of sporting activities.
Sports Premium:
 
Sports Premium Funding is funding given by the Government (calculated on the number of pupils of school age 5-11 that you have on roll at the October census) that is ring fenced for the provision of PE and Sport.
 
The aim of Sports Premium Funding is to:
1) Improve the quality of PE teaching through CPD for staff so that all pupils improve their health, skills and physical literacy, and access a broader range of sports.
2) Increase participation levels in competitive sport and healthy activity.
3) Increase the quality of initial teacher training in the teaching of PE/Sport.
4) Ensure that schools understand and value the benefits of high quality PE and Sport, including as a tool for whole school improvement.
