Sports Premium

Primary school PE and school sport funding:


In 2013 the Government announced new funding of £150 million per year to improve the quality and breadth of physical education (PE) and sport in schools for primary aged children. Funding is calculated on the number of primary aged pupils. All schools with 17 or more primary aged pupils receive £16,000 per year, plus a premium of £10 per pupil.


We will receive £16,770 in 2019-2020.


Our Vision statement:


‘Learning through Movement and Play’



Proposed use of primary PE and school sport funding at Ash Field Academy:


Whilst we fully understand this funding is specifically targeted at primary aged pupils, we firmly believe that all pupils at Ash Field are entitled to a high quality PE and sport experience, as well as access to therapies and movement development opportunities. Therefore, in 2013 we made a significant commitment and invested in the development of a ‘Movement Team’.  We firmly believe that physical activity and movement is inextricably linked with maximising a pupil's learning potential. For more information about the benefits of being physically active click on the thumbnail below.

The movement team has now been expanded to a team of 8 with a new curriculum leader / PE specialist and a specialist Yoga teacher.  They join an already established movement team and therapy manager whose main priority is comfort for learning; and a physical education lead with responsibility for the planning and delivery of both primary and secondary PE. The primary PE and sport funding has contributed to the expansion of the team.
