We believe PE and Sport plays an important role in realising our vision of Inspiring belief in God and in one another, a reality for every pupil, with the potential to change young people’s lives for the better.
Through PE and Sport our children learn to develop the important qualities of discipline, resilience, communication, teamwork and ambition which lead to improved concentration, attitude and academic achievement.
St. Richard’s is dedicated to promoting healthy and active lifestyles and to providing a wide range of Physical Education & sporting opportunities for all of its pupils. The sports premium is being used to develop staff skills in delivering PE and providing additional sporting opportunities for all pupils.
The majority of the Sport Premium is being used to buy into the enhanced package of the Hounslow School Sport Partnership (Sport Impact). This provides staff with subject specific CPD in sports like gymnastics , dance and multi skills, and is supporting the school’s existing PE leader in planning a longer term vision for PE and Sport in the school. The partnership links the school to local sports clubs, provides access to competitions for the gifted & talented, and organises an annual programme to get more pupils participating in competitive sport.
At St. Richard’s sport is encouraged through extra curricular activities at lunch and after-school. Activities offered are Martial arts, football for boys & girls, tennis, golf and team football. All clubs are heavily subsidised to make them available for all.
The PE and sport premium has increased the engagement of both staff and pupils in PE and Sport. Teachers focus on raising pupils’ achievement and developing multi abilities in their PE lessons.
