What is Sports Premium?
The government continues to provide additional funding to improve provision of physical education (PE) and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport is ring-fenced and therefore can only be spent on provision of PE and sport in school.
Purpose of the Funding
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport. At Ash Cartwright and Kelsey we recognise the contribution of PE to both the health and well-being of our children. We also believe that a varied PE curriculum and wide-ranging extra-curricular opportunities have a positive effect on concentration, attitude and the academic achievement of our pupils.
Use of the Funding at Ash Cartwright and Kelsey
The money will be used so that all the children in the school will benefit from the funding, regardless of their sporting ability. We will be using the funding to develop and improve our current provision for the PE curriculum and also to improve lunchtime and after-school clubs. Some of the money will be used to buy new resources to support us in providing high quality PE across the school.
Our strategic lead is: Mr Ryan Hayes
The impact of the sports funding on all pupils is being reviewed regularly by the PE leader and the Senior Leadership team. The PE leader will monitor pupil participation in clubs and will target specific children. The PE leader will also collate reguar fitness data on all our pupils.
