PE & SPORTS Premium
Schools receive PE and sport premium funding; ring fenced money to spend on improving the quality of PE and sports provision. Each school receives £16,000 plus an extra £10 per pupil year from 1-6. At Burnt Ash Primary School that will mean £19,620 for this academic year.
Head teachers decide how best to spend the Premium funding, although they remain accountable and must be able to demonstrate effective spending and impact across the school. The Department of Education requires schools in receipt of the funding, to publish evidence of their annual spend and its impact:
At Burnt Ash Primary, we recognise the lifelong impact of sport, as well as a healthy diet, to the future well-being of children. This is supported by government and independent research which conclude that an innovative and varied PE curriculum and extra-curricular opportunities, have a positive influence on the concentration, attitude and academic achievement of pupils.
