PE Funding

Newman Catholic Collegiate

Use of P.E and Sport Funding.



Government P.E. funding is allocated to all maintained and state-funded schools with primary phase pupils, including: primary, middle, special and non-maintained special schools, academies and pupil referral units.

Schools are free to determine how best to use this funding to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision, including increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performance levels they are capable of.

The schools within the Newman Catholic Collegiate pool a percentage of this funding, to employ a trained P.E Specialist to put into place procedures that will ensure the quality and breath of PE and sport provision is improved.

 At the beginning of the academic year all 8 School’s complete a self-review of their department, highlighting areas of strength and aspects that could be improved. This self-review will then be completed at the end of each term to enable Schools to continually target aspects of their P.E delivery which could be improved further.


The Newman Catholic Collegiate recognises the important role P.E and Sport can play in developing children’s self-esteem, physical literacy and physical, social and mental health. The Collegiate intends to continually        self-evaluate its P.E and Sports delivery to ensure the Funding allocated embeds School life in a sustainable manner.

At Our Lady of Grace our children are taught an exciting, broad and balanced curriculum - we use some of these activities to progress our Physical Education.
