Sports Funding

Newman Catholic Collegiate


Use of PE & Sport Funding


In April 2013, the Government announced new funding of £150 million for physical education (PE) and sport. This funding should be used to improve the quality and breadth of PE and sport provision.


Funding will be 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 from 1 September 2013. A typical primary school will receive about £9,250 annually.


In 2018/2019 Our Lady & St Benedict's will receive £17,770.00. 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 have pooled a percentage of this funding, employing a Physical Education Specialist Leader of Education (Mr Sigley) to manage and co-ordinate PE across all 8 primary schools. 


Throughout 2018/2019 all of the School’s within the Newman Catholic Collegiate will benefit from:

  • Teachers receiving 1-to-1 Training with a P.E Specialist in a variety of physical activities, raising the standard of teaching and learning in P.E across the Collegiate.
  • An increase in competitive opportunities in a number of Physical Activities.
  • All Teaching staff receiving high quality P.E and Sports training focusing on appropriate exercises to challenge learners of all abilities.
  • Additional extra-curricular opportunities for pupils to extend their learning.
  • A common scheme of work implemented throughout the Collegiate
  • A standardised assessment policy implemented throughout the Collegiate.
  • An elevated focus on teaching pupils the benefits of Healthy, Active Lifestyles.


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.


Each school within the Collegiate continually evaluates their PE and sports delivery. Please see the 'PE Impact' document below for further information.
