Primary PE and Sports Premium at St Stephens Junior School 2022-2023

Vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium

All Pupils who attend St Stephen’s Junior school should acquire the skills and motivation to thrive in PE and sports. This will help to promote lifelong physical activity as well as lead them on to live healthy and active lifestyles, benefitting both their mental health and general well-being.

We aim to increase the opportunities for all pupils to participate in sport. This could be through competitive sports, such as inter or intra-sport competitions, or through the various other sports that we run to engage all our pupils in an active lifestyle. Pupils will have the chance to compete in a variety of different sports throughout their school life here and we also aim to give equal opportunities.

At St Stephen’s Junior School, we recognise the contribution of PE and sport to the health and well-being of our children. We believe that a varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all of our children.
