Primary PE and Sport Premium at St. Stephen's Junior School
All Pupils who attend St Stephen’s Junior school should acquire the skills and motivation to thrive in PE and sport. This will promote lifelong physical activity and lead to a healthy and active lifestyle.
Furthermore, we strive to increase the opportunity for all pupils to participate in sport. This could be through competitive sport such as inter or intra sport competitions, or the various other sports that we run (both in and after school) to engage all our pupils in sport.
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 our children, linking to our school values: independence, creativity and respect.
