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.

Sports Premium Funding 2016-17:

In the budget of April 2016, St Edward’s received £8725 of Sports Premium Funding.

We spent £1000 (11%) on the Leeds Primary School Offer, which provides training for staff, competitions for pupils in a range of sports, skills workshops, curriculum resources and membership of both the Youth Sports Trust and the Leeds Schools Sport Association.

We spent £3100 (36%) on hiring a pool and a coach for Class 3 to swim all year round. (The school paid an additional £2150 on transport to send them swimming.)

In the school year, 2016-2017, 100% of our year 3 pupils met the required standard for the end of KS2 for swimming unaided.

We spent around £2778 (32%) on the sports partnership with Boston Spa, which provides specialist coaches for a variety of sports. The remaining money (21%)was spent on PE resources/equipment, including for active playtimes.

During 2016-17 we won: the Y3/4 local tennis competition and the Y5 local tennis competition. Our Y3/4 pupils then went on to win the East Leeds tennis competition and our Y5 pupils were runners-up in their age group. We won the Y5 Girls Cross-Country first round and one of our Y4 boys also made the second round of the competition. We were runners up in the St John Fisher football competition and in a Y5/6 netball tournament. We also competed in athletics, gymnastics, skipping and various other football tournaments.
