Sports Premium Funding and Sport

The government provides additional funding  to improve provision of physical education and sport in primary schools. This funding - provided jointly by the Departments for education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport- is being allocated to primary school headteachers. This funding can only be spent on the provision of PE and sport in schools. Funding is an £8000 lump sum with an additional £5.00 per child aged 5-11, based on the January school census. School use this funding to increase and improve the physical education available to pupils and the training and development of staff to provide sustainable improvements to the teaching of PE.

Department for Education Vision for the Primary PE and Sport Premium

ALL pupils leaving primary school physically literate and with the knowledge, skills and motivation necessary to equip them for a healthy, active lifestyle and lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.

The funding has been provided to ensure impact against the following OBJECTIVE:     

To achieve self-sustaining improvement in the quality of PE and sport in primary schools. It is important to emphasise that the focus of spending must lead to long lasting impact against the vision (above) that will live on well beyond the Primary PE and Sport Premium funding.           

It is expected that schools will see an improvement against the following 5 key indicators:

  1. the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity – kick-starting healthy active lifestyles
  2. the profile of PE and sport being raised across the school as a tool for whole school improvement
  3. increased confidence, knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
  4. broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
  5. increased participation in competitive sport

At Ashbury Meadow we are very lucky to be associated with Manchester City's City in the Community, who provide us with a specialist coach who works with every year group from year 1 to 6, ensuring pupils receive quality coaching in sports such as gymnastics, tennis, althletics,  ball games and also Boxercise. Staff work alongside our coach to develop their own skills in the delivery of this subject. We also participate in Manchester City's disabilty awareness programme and disability awareness days, the City roadshow, City Cooks, which supports parents and their children to learn about cooking healthy food, money matters, a scheme to help years 5 and 6 understand the importance of a good financial understanding for the future. Our pupils regularly attend City games and are also chosen as mascots. We also participate in tournaments for local schools hosted by Manchester City.As well as this we compete against a wide range of schools in different sports such as cross country, tag rugby, football, gymnasticsand athletics through our membership of school games.
