Holy Family Catholic Primary School


At Holy Family we believe PE is very important and an essential part of the curriculum. Each class have two PE lesson each week, therefore it is vital that children’s PE kits are in school at all times! A PE kit should consist of a pair of white shorts, a red t-shirt and black plimsolls. Children must also have their hair tied up if it is long and remove their earrings. If their earrings cannot be removed you must provide plasters or tape so they can be covered. During the colder months children are able to wear black jogging bottoms instead/as well as their white shorts, if their PE lesson is taken outside.

We have again been provided  sports premium funding to help with their development of PE. Schools have been given the freedom to use this money as they feel best for the school. Therefore over the course of the year each class will have a Super Star lessons, furthermore Year 2 and Year 3 will have swimming lessons. We will also use the funding to continue to provide the following below.

  1. Providing lunchtime clubs to direct pupils more during this free time period as well as provide them access to coaching in a new sport.
  2. Provide opportunities for pupils to access sports and activities they would not usually be able to. This is really to provide opportunities for pupils to experience sports that would not usually be available to them.
  3. Continuing to provide High Quality PE to all pupils.

Please see the document attached below for a more detailed account of our Sport Premium expenditure.

Impact of Sport Premium Money

In April 2013, the government announced new funding for Physical Education (P.E) and sports within schools.  This funding is being used to improve the quality and breath of P.E and sports provision in our school. This year our school had a total of £10701.72 due to money being carried over from the previous academic year.
