Primary School Sports Funding

We all enjoy PE at Ashlands!

All classes take part in one PE lesson which is run by a specialist coach. This could be Dance, Gymnastics, Games or Athletics depending on the season. Most of these lessons take place on our new Multi Use Games Area which has provided a safe place for PE lessons. 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 learning water confidence and then learning and developing the different swimming strokes.

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.
