Primary School Sports Funding

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 Primary 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.
