PE & sport funding


Crosscanonby St John's School allocates part of its delegated budget to insure all pupils receive a high quality curriculum and a range of learning experiences in PE and sport.

In 2019/2020 our school received £16,410  to enhance provision in PE and sport.

What have we spent this money on?

  • Further increased PE sports coaching for all classes- 
  • Participation in sports competitions and festivals- 
  • Active Breakfast Club-
  • School Sports Partnership- £675 
  • Wheelchair basketball session
  • Equipment 

Due to Covid 19 some of our plans for accessing Forest School and an outdoor and adventurous residential trip had to be postponed.


  • Children have increased confidence, stamina and competence in fundamental movement skills. Children have increased confidence in participating in team games.
  • Last academic year all pupils in Year 6 met the end of KS2 swimming requirement. 
  • Continuous Professional Development for staff including, cricket, multi-skills and tennis.
  •  Curriculum map for whole school is complete.
  • All children have access to after school clubs and the opportunity to attend outdoor and adventurous school residential visits.
  • Increased participation in inter-school sports competitions and festivals.
  • In 2019 we gained a Bronze award for sport and PE.
