PE & SPORT FUNDING – SPORTS PREMIUM
At Ashbrook School we were excited to be awarded 'Best Infant School PE Curriculum For School Year' 2018-2019 across Milton Keynes. We received a certificate and trophy with our school engraved on it, which is to be kept in pride of place for a year.
All Primary Schools will be receiving double their Sports Premium this year. It has been allocated towards addressing and improving Whole School Health and not just sports. Health and Well Being in school for both children and staff has always been a priority, but we will now have funding to support this area. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision and supporting children’s health in schools.
We are looking carefully at the funding this year to ensure continued progression of learning and positive encouragement of participation in PE by all children. Providing new opportunities and awareness of a variety of sports, new and old and encouraging a love of sport and fitness for their future. Our teaching aims to achieve a high level of fitness and achieve agility, balance and co-ordination through exciting lessons and fitness days. We will also be looking into how we can encourage a healthier lifestyle and addressing obesity and dental health.
The total amount of funding to be received by the school will be £17,200. At Ashbrook School the funding has been allocated in the following ways:
