PE and Sport Premium Funding

In 2016-17  St. Jerome's has £3193  in grant funding for P.E. and Sport.

The funding has been used to pay for Hockey and Cricket Coaching from our local Formby Hockey and Cricket Club for all year groups from Year 1 to Year 6. This takes place weekly for the school year.Pupils continue to enjoy the hockey coaching sessions and have developed considerable skill levels. Our pupils played in an inter-school hockey tournament at the end of the year last year and were very successful.Cricket coaching is offered in the Spring and Summer terms and we also have an after school cricket club which is popular. A number of our pupils have joined Formby Hockey Club and play regularly. 

PE funding has also been used to pay for transport to weekly swimming lessons for pupils in Years 3,4 and 5.

We used the funding for a whole school skipping event in September - we do this bi-annually to promote physical activity and develop the skills of skipping across the school. We purchased sets of skipping ropes with the funding to ensure the interest and opportunity is sustained.

Transport to interschool athletics events and the swimming gala were funded by this grant.

The P.E. funding was used to pay for a Dance specialist to teach dance in the Spring Term.

The P.E. funding was used to pay for a Sports Leaders Award course for pupils in years 5 and 6.

Pupils at the school participate with enthusiasm in all the opportunities for sport; an increased number of pupils are now active at Formby Hockey Club, Formby Netball and all the Junior football teams.
