Sharing sports facilities
St Joseph’s College has recently built three five-a-side MUGA pitches and refurbished our swimming pool. Having developed these facilities we are keen that they are used not only by our own pupils, but also by the wider community. Redlands Primary School is next door to St Joseph’s College but has very limited facilities for outdoor sporting activities. We have provided the use of the MUGA pitches, swimming pool and PE teachers for over four hours a week for them to develop their PE curriculum.
Redlands Primary School is a multi-cultural community primary school (Nursery - Year 6). There are currently 237 pupils on roll (FS2-Y6) and 20 morning and 20 afternoon nursery places. It was judged Good by Ofsted in 2012. It has no green space and outdoor facilities are limited due to the restrictions of the playground.
To share PE and swimming pool facilities. The pupils at Redlands Primary School are the immediate beneficiaries.
St Joseph’s College provides the usage of three five-a-side MUGA pitches, the swimming pool and changing rooms, and the services of our PE staff. These are all provided free of charge as part of the partnership.
Age group: 5 – 11 years, total of 210 pupils mixed girls and boys. 1 hour 10 mins swimming per week and 3 hours 30 minutes pitch time per week over 29 weeks.
Ongoing, weekly during term time (29 weeks in total).
