The government is providing funding of £150 million per annum for the academic year 2015/16 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 school headteachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children.
This academic year, Ashmole has been awarded a sports premium grant of over £7000, and this money can only be spent on sport and PE provision in our school.
At Ashmole, we fully recognise that the contribution of Physical Sport and Education to the health and well-being of the children. We believe that an innovative and varied PE curriculum has a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of all our children.
Our Primary Sports Premium Funding will enable us to continue and extend our provision through employing additional sports professionals, entering into more competitive sports competitions and training our staff to deliver in-house quality PE lessons.
