Primary School Sports Funding

We all enjoy PE at Ashlands!

All classes take part in at least one PE lesson per week. We take in turns having PE sessions run by a specialist coaches across the year with our other teachers and staff joining in with us. This could be Dance, Gymnastics, Games or Athletics depending on the season. Most of these lessons take place on our Multi Use Games Area (MUGA) which has provided a safe place for PE lessons in all weathers. In the Early Years and KS1, children will learn a range of fundamental movement skills including running, jumping, balancing, throwing and catching and agility. They will begin to use some of these skills in games situations. In KS2, children will develop these skills further as they learn the rules for different sports and learn how to play as a team.

We also believe that swimming is an important life skill and all our children go swimming at Crewkerne Aqua Centre during the year. Our Reception children have 3 swimming sessions in the summer term to learn some water confidence skills. From Year 1 onwards, all children will swim for 12 weeks, first gaining water confidence and then learning and developing the different swimming strokes.

It is also our aim to provide as many additional sport and physical development based opportunities as possible, catering for all needs and interests. We offer ‘Huff and Puff’ at playtimes and lunchtimes where we play with a range of equipment and have group games,  daily ‘Wake and Shake’ sessions and after school clubs and activities.

What is the Sports Premium?

The PE and Sport Premium funding is provided to help schools improve the quality of PE and sport activities that they offer their pupils.  PE and Sport Premium is provided to primary schools, in additional to main school funding. This funding is ring-fenced and therefore, can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools. It is for schools to decide how the PE and Sport funding is spent, since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made to enhance the provision for PE in school. Schools are held accountable for how they have used the additional funding.

What is the purpose of the funding?

At Ashlands Church of England First School, we recognise the importance of PE and sport to the health and wellbeing of all our children.  We use the PE and Sports Premium to support our aim to ensure that our children have access to a varied PE curriculum throughout their time in school and a range of extra-curricular activities that allow them access to a different sports and opportunities to compete.   We encourage our children to understand the importance of sport and the benefits that can be gained from those opportunities, which we hope they will carry through into their adult life. We believe that every child has the opportunity to take part in a range of different activities to learn how to lead a healthy lifestyle and fulfil their sporting potential, no matter what their background, age or ability.

What is the Government advice for how the funding should be used?

The Goverment advise that funding should be used to:

  • develop or add to the PE and sport activities that schools already offer
  • build capacity and capability within the school to ensure that improvements made now will benefit pupils joining the school in future years

There are 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across:

  • the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – the Chief Medical Officer guidelines recommend that all children and young people aged 5 to 18 engage in at least 60 minutes of physical activity a day, of which 30 minutes should be in school
  • the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
  • increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  • broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  • increased participation in competitive sport

PE & SPORT PREMIUM FUNDING FOR THE CURRENT ACADEMIC YEAR- 2017- 2018

Schools receive PE and Sport Premium Funding based on the number of pupils in Years 1 to 6.  Funding is calculated on the following basis:

Schools with 16 or fewer eligible pupils receive £500 per pupil.

Schools with 17 or more eligible pupils receive £8,000 and an additional payment of £10 per pupil.

Further funding is anticipated this year.  Plans made are based on the funding received so far. Additional plans will be implemented and reported as additional funding is received.
