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 £17,935.
 

Our dedicated teacher of P.E, Mr. Barnett leads our P.E curriculum, which currently includes:

  1. 2x PE lessons a week (swimming is part of this in the autumn and summer terms).
  2. Extracurricular 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, physical dexterity, and swimming.  The PE and Sports Premium funding has also been allocated to improving the schools’ sports equipment and facilities.  

 

Meeting national curriculum requirements for swimming and water safety. By the end of Year 6:

 

 

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort swim competently, confidently, and proficiently over a distance of at least 25 meters?

 

88%

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort use a range of strokes effectively [for example, front crawl, backstroke, and breaststroke]?

 

88%

What percentage of your current Year 6 cohort perform safe self-rescue in different water-based situations?

 

92%

Schools can choose to use the Primary PE and sport premium to provide additional provision for swimming, but this must be for activity over and above the national curriculum requirements. Have you used it in this way?

No

 

In academic year 22-23 the school received approximately £17,935, which was fully spent and the school topped this funding up to provide the following:
