PE and Sports Premium
The premium was introduced to all primary schools to be used to fund improvements to the provision of PE and sport, for the benefit of primary-aged pupils, in the 2014 to 2015 academic year to give them the opportunity to develop a healthy lifestyle.
The staff and governors of St Patrick’s are committed to providing an excellent education that helps all of our children to achieve highly both academically and in their personal development.
This will be achieved through first-rate teaching, an exciting curriculum and a broad range of extra-curricular activities and, above all, exceptional care of all staff to ensure that all pupils consistently reach well above average standards.
