This funding is jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and sees money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of, and participation in, sport and PE for all their children.

The allocation for St. Josephs RC Primary School for the academic year 2020/21 was £17, 371.

• Hire specialised and qualified sports coaches to work with school in delivering quality PE sessions

• Increased participation in competitive sport – running sports competitions or increasing pupils’ participation in school games
