Primary PE and Sports Premium

Here at Ashwicken Primary we recognise the contribution of PE to the health and wellbeing of our children. We believe that an innovative, varied PE curriculum and extra- curricular opportunities have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all of our children.

Our Primary School funding will enable us to develop our provision through employing sports professionals, training our staff to deliver quality lessons and join in with other schools in sports competitions.

What is Sports Premium?

The government is providing funding of £150 million each year for the academic years 2013 through to 2020 to provide new and substantial primary school sports funding. The funding is jointly provide by the Department for Education, Health and Culture , Media and Sports. It will see the money going directly into primary school headteachers to spend on the quality of sport and PE. Each school receives £16,000 plus an extra £10 per pupil – here at Ashwicken that means £17,260 a year starting October 2017. The money can only be spent on sports and PE in schools.
