Sport & PE Grant

Sport is a strong element of school life at St Ignatius and is an important part of a child’s education. It encourages sportsmanship, self discipline and dedication, and helps children to view sport as an integral part of a happy and healthy life.

In addition to our Physical Education curriculum we aim to provide as many extra-curricular sporting activities as possible for boys and girls.  These change term-by-term, and cover a range of sports. The school also takes part in a number of inter school competitions. We strive to do our very best to win and are often very successful but it is even more important to teach the virtues of good grace in victory or defeat and the value of building character as we compete.

Each summer sports days are organised for Early Years, KS1 and KS2 and parents are invited to come along.

Swimming lessons, at Ossett Academy swimming pool, take place once a week for Year 4 and 5 children.

We receive extra sport funding through the Sports Premium. We intend to use the money to improve the confidence amongst staff in the delivery of high quality PE lessons across school, broadening the range of activities offered to pupils and improving our resources to allow the children to experience a range of new and different sports. We feel that this is the most effective and efficient way for the funding to have a long lasting and positive effect on future learning and physical development of our children within our school. The money will be used so that all children benefit regardless of sporting ability, that children are given the opportunity to compete in sporting activities and that staff have access to training opportunities and continued professional development.

In order to use the funding effectively in our school we are committed to developing Physical Education and competitive sport. In our school we are using this funding by working with a series of professional partners including St Wilfrid’s Catholic High School and Sixth Form College.
