Ashmole Primary School appreciates the contribution of PE to the health and well-being of its children. We also acknowledge that a broad, balanced, high quality curriculum and extra-curricular activities have a positive impact on concentration, attitude and achievement.
The school is committed to ensuring that all pupils receive a minimum of 2 hours of PE per week, delivered by well-trained and enthusiastic teachers. The Sport Premium funding is allowing us to develop a sustainable improvement in teacher confidence and a new curriculum based on developing children’s physical literacy skills. Regular staff training opportunities will be provided for teachers and teaching assistants (TAs) to keep them abreast of new initiatives.
We will organise a Sports Week every year including competitive races for KS1 and KS2. There will be a wide range of after school sports clubs, both for team and individual sports.
What is the Sports Premium?
The government has provided funding of £150 million per annum for the academic years 2013/14 and 2014/15 to provide new and substantial primary school sport funding. The funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary schools to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. Each school will receive £8,000 plus an extra £5 per pupil each year for the next two years. The money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.
Monitoring and Evaluation
This report will be updated at the end of each academic year to identify the success of the above initiatives and the impact that they have had.
Delivery will be monitored by the PE Leader in the first instance. This will be overseen and managed at senior level by the Head Teacher and Deputy Head.
Monitor the take-up of extra-curricular activities.
Monitoring will include observations of teaching, drop-ins to clubs run by school staff, volunteers and outside agencies to ensure that provision is of high quality.
