Funding for PE - Sports Premium - The government is committed to securing a significant lasting legacy from the successful 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games. To help achieve this and improve the PE and sport in schools, additional funding has been made available. Schools receive funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6 - this funding will double this academic year. Every school has the freedom to decide how their funding is spent to improve sport, PE and pupil participation and training within their school. The 5 key indicators that schools should expect to see improvement across are:
* the engagement of all pupils in regular physical activity
* the profile of PE and sport is raised across the school as a tool for whole-school improvement
* increased confidence , knowledge and skills of all staff in teaching PE and sport
* broader experience of a range of sports and activities offered to all pupils
* increased participation in competitive sport

Strategic lead - Mr Ryan Hayes
Proposed expenditure: Funding for specialist qualified sports coaches (September 2017 - December 2017), partial funding of a HLTA (January 2018 - September 2018) to improve the assessment of PE and lead staff meetings, increase coaching and guidance for teaching staff at Ash Cartwright and Kelsey and increase the number of children (with a focus on pupil premium children) taking part in intra-school competitions.
From September 2017 until December 2017, part of this money will be used for hiring specialist qualified sports coaches for Key Stage 1 and 2 - this includes lunchtime and after school clubs. From January 2018 our HLTA will be leading PE across the school, working alongside teachers and TA's to plan and deliver high quality PE sessions. We will link this in with our pupil premium strategy to ensure that any vulnerable groups do not miss out on sporting opportunities. We aim for all children to engage in regular physical activity and strive to ensure that the profile of PE and Sport are raised across the school. We want to ensure that the funding upskills alll teaching staff. We have also increased our number of inter-school sport fixtures amongst local primary schools.
