PE and Sport Premium

St Richard’s Primary School strongly believes that Physical Education has a fundamental role to play in the development of the whole child. It provides the foundations for a healthy lifestyle, promotes self-esteem, fosters good behaviour and allows children to develop their understanding of co-operation, fairness and respect for others through active participation. With the help of the school sport funding we aim to create a culture that encourages lifelong participation in healthy, active lifestyles.


Please see the links below to see how the Sports Funding has been used.
