Sports Premium

Sport Premium Overview

At Ashford Church of England Primary School we believe Physical Education (PE) & Sport plays an important role in changing young people’s lives for the better.

We welcomed the Government’s announcement in June 2013 to provide additional funding to improve provision of PE and sport in primary schools. We are committed to using this resource in developing high quality PE lessons, alongside greater opportunities for sporting competitions and clubs for all our young people.

Sport Premium Grant

Funding for schools is calculated by the number of primary aged pupils (between the ages of 5 and 11). All schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils will receive a lump sum of £8,000 plus a premium of £5 per pupil.

What does the Sport Premium mean for Ashford CE?

‘Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this’ (DfE June 2013).

At Ashford CE we have decided to use the funding for three key areas for consideration; Physical Education, Healthy Active Lifestyles and Competitive Sport. In the first year of this funding we ran a range of special events, including out first ever House Football Competition. We introduced Gugafit, which had a massively positive response from children across the school, we invested in training and new resources for a range of areas, and we hope to do even more in future years to encourage participation in sport and build staff skills and confidence in delivering our PE curriculum. Our focus this year has been to increase participation in sports for all by providing sports opportunities at lunchtimes. A full breakdown of our investment can be found below, along with our plans for this year. This is a very exciting time for PE and sport in our school, and we look forward to giving you further updates on how we are using this grant and the impact it is having.
