Sports Premium 2017-18
Sport and PE at Ashton Gate Primary School.
What is the Primary ‘Sport Premium’?
The new primary ‘sport premium’ funding for primary schools has been designed to help schools in a variety of ways. Some of the outcomes we hope to meet through the ‘sport premium’ funding are:
• Increased opportunities for competitive sport.
• Improved quality of teaching and learning in Primary Physical Education.
• Improvements in the quality and breadth of PE and sporting provision, including “increasing participation in PE and sport so that all pupils develop healthy lifestyles and reach the performances levels they are capable of.”
Uses at Ashton Gate Primary for the Sports Premium
Ashton Park Sports Partnership
An amount of the money will be used to buy into the Ashton Park Sport Partnership. This will be our 4th year as part of the partnership, it is a vital tool that we have to enable all pupils the opportunity to compete in a wide range of sports at both local and county level. Cherry Kraus (the director) and her team put on a range of festivals to suit all needs. They are always competitive and allow schools to progress onto county, regional and national competitions. As well as providing the children with much needed competition, they provided the school and teachers with a wide variety of CPD opportunities that not only build teachers confidence but allow high quality teaching.
Part of the Sports Premium grant has been used to pay for specialist coaches from SuperStars to deliver high quality additional PE sessions, focusing on inclusive sports that give all children an opportunity to succeed and foster a lifelong love of sport. This year we will be giving the children an opportunity to experience archery, boccia and handball. These sessions have also provided training on specific sports and coaching skills for school staff. This will ensure that there is a legacy of continued excellent sports coaching for the pupils.
