Primary PE and Sport Premium Grant Report

At Ridgeway Primary School and Nursery we are strongly committed to promoting children’s physical development, PE skills and enjoyment of sport. We recognise that importance of PE to health and well-being of our children and the impact the PE curriculum and extra-curricular activities can have on the attitudes, confidence and academic achievement of all children. This is evident in the wide range of activities that we offer within school, outside of school and involvement in competitive sport against other schools.

  •     To develop a broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils.
  •     To develop teachers’ PE skills and teaching
