Our Vision for PE
St. Oswald’s C of E Primary School is a school of healthy, happy and active learners who all understand the importance of leading a healthy and physically active lifestyle. We care about our bodies, making healthy choices and challenging ourselves to build on our skills in all areas of the curriculum. We are competitive in the sporting challenges we face but we understand good sportsmanship and that it’s just as important to take part.

The money is given by Department of Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport (through Sport England. Each school will receive approximately £8,000 plus £5 per pupil.
Total annual budget for St. Oswald’s = £9,375
