PE and Sport Premium (How we use our Sports 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 academic year 17-18 the school received approximately £17,570, which was used to provide some of the following:


In 2017-18, the funding was used to:

  •  Provide staff training to create cross country/football and netball teams to take part in competitive events.

  • Provide swimming coaches, who work alongside staff to develop skills

  • Provide PE specialist coaches to work alongside staff to develop skills.




In 2018-19 the funding will be used to:

  • Coach and enter our cross country, football and netball teams into competitive county events.
