PE Mission Statement
At St Philip Neri we aim to promote excellence in PE and sport through encouraging healthy and active lifestyles, providing high quality PE, engaging in competitive activities and developing skills and determination for each child to achieve their full potential in a broad range of PE activities.
At St Philip Neri Primary School we believe that physical education is essential to the development of the pupil as a whole. Physical education contributes to the emotional, mental, intellectual and social development of the pupils. High quality physical activity and sport make a positive contribution to pupil’s experiences of school life and help to raise aspirations.
The aim of physical education at St Philip Neri is to provide children with a broad and balanced curriculum which is stimulating, progressive and challenging. A wide and varied physical education curriculum comprising of progressive learning objectives with appropriate and challenging targets will help to develop a full range of skills amongst pupils. We aim to ensure that within their own ability all children can achieve and experience success and reach their full potential. Physical education at St Philip Neri will develop pupils’ leadership, teamwork, problem solving, confidence, creativity and communication.
At St Philip Neri it is recognised, and highly regarded, that physical education plays a vital role in promoting positive attitudes towards healthy active lifestyles.

Purpose of the funding
The School Sport Premium money is ring fenced and can only be spent on Physical Education and sport provision in school. Schools will be expected to spend the funding on improving and enhancing their provision of physical education and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how to do this.
Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport offered.
This means that the sports premium funding should be used to:
- develop or add to the PE and sport activities that your school already offers
- build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years
