Being an Athlete

Athletes at St Barnabas are inspired to succeed and excel in competitive sport and other physically demanding activities. Our athletes have opportunities to become physically confident in a way which supports their health and fitness. Opportunities to compete in sport and other activities are provided and help to build character, whilst embedding the school’s values, such as respect.

What is PE and Sports Premium?

In order to improve Physical Education in primary schools the government is issuing an additional grant. The funding is jointly provided by Departments of Education, Health and Culture and Media and Sport. It is given directly to the schools and can only be spent on sport and PE provisions including hiring specialist PE teachers and coaches, professional development for the teaching of PE, running sports competitions and sports clubs.
