PE and Sports Premium Funding

The PE and Sports Premium Funding is provided by the Government to help primary schools improve the provision of physical education and sport offered to pupils. Funding for Ash Grange is calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between 5 and 11). From 2017, all schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils received a lump sum of £16,000 plus a premium of £10 per pupil
 

In September 2021, Mr Barnett joined the Ash Grange team as a full-time teacher of PE. This enables us to provide all our lessons and additional opportunities, which includes:

  1. 2x PE lessons a week (swimming is part of this in the autumn and summer terms).
  2. Extra Elite Sports Clubs which provide a chance to develop the skills of the more able athletes.
  3. Physical Dexterity SEN groups
  4. Nursery and Reception PE and swimming lessons to build gross and fine motor control and water confidence
  5. Fixture set up and management of competitive sport opportunities

 

The Sports Premium funding has allowed Mr. Barnett to attend CPD courses to enhance his knowledge and skills in various activities. These have included dance, handball, and swimming. We have also invested in extracurricular sports initiatives such as the whole-school Skateboard and Scooter festival in 2021. Finally, the PE and Sports Premium funding has been allocated to improving the schools’ sports equipment and facilities.

No
